#10: Challenge of the week: Squats

I like to give myself a weekly challenge in order to stay motivated. There are 7 levels for every challenge, so everyone can join in. Feel free to modify the challenges so they fit your personal needs. Remember always to listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard but keep moving. Doing only these challenges is not a balanced way to get or stay fit.

Air Squats!
Last week we did dips, something I don’t like. This week, we do one of my favourite exercises, which I mostly incorporate in my outside running training. It is a great way to work on stability and leg strength. I promise you, if you overdo it, walking will be hard the next day!

level 1: 50 reps
level 2: 100 reps
level 3: 150 reps
level 4: 450 seconds (only if you have a good technique!)
level 5: 750 seconds (only if you have a good technique!)
level 6: 900 seconds (only if you have a good technique!)
level 7: 1500 seconds (only if you have a good technique!)
