“Hey everyone! Cory from EarthFIT here. It is January 2019, good time for a challenge so I’m going to have for you guys the Squat Challenge.
The goal is that for 5 days in 1 week you’re able to get a hundred body weight squats in one day. So the progression with that, you want to start out with 3 sets of 15. And then from there, you know, work up to 3 sets of 20, and add another set: 4 sets of 20, so you already we’re at 80 and then you can work up to being able to do 2 sets of 50 or maybe even a hundred squats straight.
So when you do the squats: we are doing 100 squats. I don’t want you to just go as fast as you can, half way down, just to bust out reps, so make sure that you’re going all the way down, the chest stays up and you set your hips back behind you, watching the knees here (please see the video). The knees are going to bend and the hips are going to go back behind you, so you’re nice and controlled, going all the way down, all the way up. That’s what it should look like from the side if you’re doing the squats, and then if you look at from the front the knees have to be going the same way as the toes, so you don’t want to go super wide and let the knees cave in… we want to bring your stance in a bit, flare your toes out slightly, make sure that your knees are passing, or going the same direction as the toes, so nice and controlled. Start out where you are at wherever you’re at: 3 sets of 15, 4 sets of 20, whatever it is, then be able to work up to doing 100 squats everyday 5 days a week.”
