MikeLitoris Mon 13-May-13 19:57:42

I fancy this but have no idea if I am squatting properly! grin

I might try and do 50 tonight .

Soupa Mon 13-May-13 20:03:19

Need to Google squats but might...

wibblyjelly Mon 13-May-13 20:11:52

I don't think I squatted down enough when I did mine, but I was feeling it at the end, so I must have been doing some good...

MikeLitoris Mon 13-May-13 21:33:06

I had good intentions but ended up having tea and chocolate instead

How long does 50 squats take anyway?

wibblyjelly Mon 13-May-13 21:37:11

It took me about 3 minutes, but I don't think I went low enough.

cantthinkofanythingwitty Mon 13-May-13 22:07:26

you inspired me, i have just done day 1 smile surprisingly it wasnt so sad ........ i was probably doing it wrong

cantthinkofanythingwitty Mon 13-May-13 22:08:16

bad even lol grin

QueenOfCats Mon 13-May-13 22:08:35

I'm in - gonna do 50 now smile

zenoushka Mon 13-May-13 22:14:38

I'm in too!

Just went to my first body conditioning class this evening, it was pretty squat-tastic. Was really tough, but felt so good after the class. Although think I'll definitely be feeling those muscles tomorrow....

wibblyjelly Mon 13-May-13 22:15:46

Well done all! I'm doing c25k as well, so tomorrow is going to be interesting......

QueenOfCats Mon 13-May-13 22:16:30

Done! Am I supposed to feel it so much in my knees??

DrSeuss Mon 13-May-13 22:17:59

I am myself quite squat, will that do?

QueenOfCats Tue 14-May-13 01:22:35

So, I did 50 squats at about 10pm, just went to get a bass of water and I can hardly walk!

My legs feel like they're giving way, I almost ended up in a heap at the foot of the stairs!

Is this an indication of how unfit I really am?

wibblyjelly Tue 14-May-13 02:43:38

I had the same, and the person who got me started on this thinks I wasn't going low enough on my squats. The problem is, I went as low as I could! I'm hoping it will start to get easier the more I get used to them. I last did squats when I was in school, so quite a while ago....

wibblyjelly Tue 14-May-13 08:11:42

55 squats completed this morning.....

aliciaflorrick Tue 14-May-13 08:14:12

I'm going to try this, I find squats really hard, but am off on holiday in six weeks so it would be nice not to have a flabby bum.

ninja Tue 14-May-13 08:33:07

I'll join you, I can print off the list as a chart and give myself stickers ticks!

I migh even consider adding sit ups too wink

wibblyjelly Tue 14-May-13 08:59:26

ninja you're hard core smile

CooEeeEldridge Tue 14-May-13 09:22:33

Ooh yes, I did this a while ago and promised I'd stay doing some daily after the 30 days.... Oops! So I'll join and start again if that's ok? I also added 100 sit ups each day to it last time which I'll prob do again..

wibblyjelly Tue 14-May-13 09:28:50

I'm not sure I'm brave enough to do the sit ups. Would you all do the same amount as the squats per day?

HairyPotter Tue 14-May-13 09:34:24

I have just managed 50. God it hurts. Are my arms supposed to be aching as well? hmm

EauRouge Tue 14-May-13 10:18:11

Ooh, I'm tempted by this. Is it OK to do running as well? Don't want to knacker my leg muscles by not giving them a break.

wibblyjelly Tue 14-May-13 10:20:18

eau I'm doing c25k at the same time. I'm going running tonight, think I'll be slower than ever though, as my thighs already feel like they are on fire smile

zenoushka Tue 14-May-13 14:28:40

I can barely go up and down the stairs today - every muscle in my legs ache! So sore... But no pain no gain right?!

wibblyjelly Tue 14-May-13 19:38:41

Running was hard tonight, but the fact that I'm feeling it must mean its doing some good, right?

HairyPotter Wed 15-May-13 23:44:03

I just remembered about this after I went to bed, so, got back up and did my 55 squats! grin

Pinebarrens Wed 15-May-13 23:48:47

marking my place. will start tomorrow as im in bed & Dh is asleep. gives me time to you tube squats grin

did my first post baby run tonight so i'm up for this as i was horrified at the amount of wobbling whilst running shock

wibblyjelly Thu 16-May-13 02:06:01

Well done hairy! I'm now on a rest day, thank goodness. Then onto 70 on Friday. I am going for a run tomorrow, no rest for the wicked!

HairyPotter Thu 16-May-13 08:16:20

I think I'm going to restart couch to 5k again on Monday. I caught sight of myself in a mirror at the theatre last night. I had thought when I went out that I looked ok. The mirror begged to differ sad I am a whale.

wibblyjelly Thu 16-May-13 08:18:04
Soupa Thu 16-May-13 09:51:08

I don't seem to be able to squat! That can't be right unless am missing a hinge. Dh is going to laugh at me tonight and see where am going wrong. My bum seems to have melted and slid down the rear of my thighs so something needs to happen!

wibblyjelly Thu 16-May-13 10:15:37

I've just found this, and discovered I've been doing it wrong. I'm not sticking my fat arse out enough grin


Pinebarrens Thu 16-May-13 11:23:32

so am i allowed to take a break after say 20 on the basis that i thought my wobbly thighs were going to give way?!

Bakingnovice Thu 16-May-13 11:29:49

I'm starting today! 50 squats here I come.

HairyPotter Thu 16-May-13 23:37:51

Day 3's 60 squats done. I tried to go lower and stick my arse out and it felt sore so it must be doing something... <crosses fingers, legs etc>

wibblyjelly Fri 17-May-13 08:54:12

Day 5, and 70 squats done! My calves hurt <sob>

Pinebarrens Fri 17-May-13 14:10:51

55 done got a run to do later.
i will get fit!

wibblyjelly Sat 18-May-13 09:07:50

75 squats done!

wibblyjelly Sun 19-May-13 13:00:10

80 done with a hangover grin

Salbertina Mon 20-May-13 10:48:07

3x 30! Surprised myself, much easier to do if just sneak it in- one set while kettle on, one set before breakfast etc

wibblyjelly Mon 20-May-13 10:52:58

Totally agree with your approach sal Rest day for me today, then jumping up to 100 tomorrow. Except its not a rest day, I'm going out for a run later smile

MorrisZapp Mon 20-May-13 12:53:10

I'm in! With caveats...

I need to know the form. Is it squat down, then stand fully straight again each time? Or can we squat down and do 'bounce' type squats?

Also, can you stop for a few seconds now and then, or is it keep going until death?

I do squats at body attack and I freakin hate them, so they must be good.

MorrisZapp Mon 20-May-13 12:54:05

Oh right so we can break them up, phew!

wibblyjelly Mon 20-May-13 13:04:15

Welcome Morris! I squat down, then stand up right, before squatting down again.

wibblyjelly Tue 21-May-13 07:51:41

Done my hundred this morning grin

Salbertina Tue 21-May-13 08:32:56

Well done, Wibbly! Need to change yr name grin

Just did 95 squats & dips (in 3 sets)

wibblyjelly Wed 22-May-13 08:00:23

105 this morning. Bit easier today, think the rest day may do more harm than good, as the first day after them is always really hard.

Salbertina Wed 22-May-13 11:24:42

Ok just done 100 dips & squats- want buns of steel after all this!
Stupid question but what next after make it to 150 or 200 or whatever? Taper back down a bit? Guess body gets used to certain level so effect less but not sustainable to keep upping the number either..

wibblyjelly Wed 22-May-13 12:28:31

I'm going to keep going at the number I stop at. If I keep increasing, I won't have time to do anything else grin

Salbertina Fri 24-May-13 07:16:13

Exactly! Ok rested yesterday, back to it today, think it may hurt!

wibblyjelly Fri 24-May-13 07:39:24

I'm on a rest day today. After 30 crunches, 110 squats, and a 20 min run, I deserve it!

Salbertina Fri 24-May-13 08:26:25

Well done! Just done exrcises inc 105 dips & squats, now on exercise bike ..

Salbertina Sat 25-May-13 08:44:28

Anyone else today? Due to do 110

wibblyjelly Sat 25-May-13 09:07:08

Morning Sal. I'm about to do my 130 grin

Salbertina Sat 25-May-13 10:04:59

Morning, Wibbly. Am done, phew grin
Took a while - intermittent visits from dc with various demands

wibblyjelly Sun 26-May-13 08:59:11

Morning squatters. 135 completed today. I'm actually finding it really hard. I'm quite tempted to get up to 150 and stop there.

Kneedeepindaisies Tue 28-May-13 10:56:54

I'm going to start this tomorrow .

I jog at the moment and am doing the 150 tricep dip challenge but only on day 4.smile

Has anyone lost weight or noticed that your legs look slimmer or is it to early?

wibblyjelly Tue 28-May-13 11:52:58

I've lost a stone, but I didn't weigh myself in the 8 months since ds was born, so not sure if its the running or squats that has done it grin

wibblyjelly Wed 29-May-13 12:43:14

Squats done!

How did you get on knee ?

Kneedeepindaisies Wed 29-May-13 13:13:58

Hi wibbly.

I've had a nightmare morning but am jogging tonight so will do my squats then.

Kneedeepindaisies Wed 29-May-13 22:27:39

I have somehow managed to post on the wrong thread.hmm

Anyway, I did 50 squats, 60 tricep dips and jogging tonight.

wibblyjelly Thu 30-May-13 07:27:13

Well done! I'm due 50 crunches, then 155 squats. I cried off from my run last night, so must do that as well smile

wibblyjelly Thu 30-May-13 21:16:47

Got in from a 25 minute non stop run (a first for me) then remembered I still need to do squattage, and almost cried. All done now!

Kneedeepindaisies Thu 30-May-13 21:29:41

Actually did 65 today and 70 tricep dips. smile

wibblyjelly Thu 30-May-13 22:18:30

Well done knee smile

MorrisZapp Thu 30-May-13 23:17:05

I'm hopeless at remembering to do stuff like this, but tonight I went to BodyPump and did many, many squats, with a barbell on my shoulders! Also lunges, dips etc. I think I may be in agony tomorrow. I actually want to look pumped up, with big biceps and everything.

Kneedeepindaisies Fri 31-May-13 09:23:45

Well done Morris and Wibbly.

I have only ever been to Body Pump once.hmm I nearly fell down the stairs on the way out because my legs were like jelly.

I ached for 5 days and never went back.

wibblyjelly Fri 31-May-13 10:27:25

160 squats!!! And I managed to get to 100 without too much trouble, so its obviously doing something grin . Well done everyone!

Kneedeepindaisies Fri 31-May-13 10:50:47

74 dips and 60 squats today as well as other exercises.

Won't be running today so not really any cardio but I will be cleaning for 2 hours so I'll definitely sweat!

Salbertina Fri 31-May-13 11:44:35

<crawls back on here> well, slight hiatus but did 50 dipd and Squats

wibblyjelly Fri 31-May-13 12:12:17

<waves at sal>

sybilfaulty Sat 01-Jun-13 08:07:04

Marking my place. It's the 1st June so I have the month to get my arse into better shape. Might do something with my abs as well as they are rather wobbly post 3 huge babies!

wibblyjelly Sat 01-Jun-13 08:23:58

Welcome Sybil I've woken up this morning, and my back is in agony (not squat related, I should add!). I'm not sure whether to power through, or just rest today. I'll see if it eases off later sad

sassytheFIRST Sat 01-Jun-13 08:28:52

I like this idea. Have done the Shred before now and I'm not unfit but struggle to fit exercise in sometimes. So this is v doable.

Did 1st 50 today - no trouble until about 35, last 5 were quite hard. 50 situps as well, will swim in a bit as dd2 has swimming lesson so aiming for 30 lengths during her half hour.

Just booked our holiday to California in 8 weeks and want to be 10lbs down by then so this will help.

wibblyjelly Sat 01-Jun-13 08:35:44

I've been doing crunches as well sassy it all helps. Due to do 170 today smile

Salbertina Sat 01-Jun-13 09:12:21

Waves back to Wibbly and everyone smile

Am psyching self up to do 60 squats & dips today

wibblyjelly Sat 01-Jun-13 09:45:31

OK, stupid question, but what's a dip? smile

Salbertina Sat 01-Jun-13 09:49:30

Oh, sorry, tricep dip (for bingo wings!)
Dip down supported by arms from chair (kind of squat too)

wibblyjelly Sat 01-Jun-13 10:01:37

I move my hands up when I squat to keep my balance, so it seems I'm doing them by default smile

Salbertina Sat 01-Jun-13 10:09:47

Ah, really worth doing leaning on a chair though, a v different exercise using full body resistance, REALLY works the triceps. But maybe you don't have bingo wings in which case, don't bother grin

sybilfaulty Sat 01-Jun-13 18:40:34

First 50 squats done. Thighs feel OK but my knees really hurt! Awful. Will have to check I am doing it right.

Will start crunches tomorrow. Am leaving arms til July!

wibblyjelly Sat 01-Jun-13 18:49:09

Well done, I have an unexpected rest day, thanks to my painful back, but hoping to get back into it tomorrow'smile

Kneedeepindaisies Sat 01-Jun-13 22:35:17

I'm having a rest day too but will get back on it tomorrow. Will hopefully try the crunch challenge too.

sassytheFIRST Sun 02-Jun-13 08:09:53

Thought I was reasonably fit but the thighs this morning!!! Stairs are a challenge...

55 squats done, 55situps done.

sybilfaulty Sun 02-Jun-13 09:36:42

Sassy you are on the same day as me. Mine don't feel too bad but I didn't do the situps. The stairs were indeed a challenge though! Bloody hell. It must be doing us good.

Lovely day here. Hope it is where you all are too.

qazxc Sun 02-Jun-13 12:53:47

I'm on day 2. 55 squats. am doing the tribesport squat challenge and 50 ab crunches a day challenge. smile

wibblyjelly Sun 02-Jun-13 13:02:18

160 squats, 50 crunches and a 30 minute non stop run. Hoping to fit a swim in later today as well. grin

sybilfaulty Sun 02-Jun-13 18:27:24

55 squats done. Hurray.

sassytheFIRST Mon 03-Jun-13 19:57:21

60 squats, 60 situps.

Legs still complaining about stairs though improving. Glad tomorrow is a rest day just to give them a chance to recover!

wibblyjelly Mon 03-Jun-13 20:06:51

I've had a rest day today, not looking forward to tomorrow. 180 squats to do!

Kneedeepindaisies Mon 03-Jun-13 22:15:10

65 squats, 60 sit ups and 60 tricep dips amongst other things.

I am breaking it up though is that ok?

qazxc Tue 04-Jun-13 08:37:01

Day 4, rest. aaaahhhhh (until my spinning class tonight)

sybilfaulty Tue 04-Jun-13 09:59:13

65 done today. I inadvertently had a rest day yesterday as was at work and out in evening. Was starting to squat in my office when a colleague came in without knocking !

Salbertina Tue 04-Jun-13 10:01:14

Knee, no, no, not allowed! Won't work at all then...
Joking wink

wibblyjelly Tue 04-Jun-13 12:00:17

Sybil grin

wibblyjelly Tue 04-Jun-13 12:31:23

180 squats, calves really hurt, and legs feel like jelly....

Kneedeepindaisies Tue 04-Jun-13 22:08:52

70 squats 65 dips. Can't remember how many crunches. smile

wibblyjelly Wed 05-Jun-13 14:36:03

Really struggled today, but did my 185. Wussed out on my crunches, only 20 today.

sassytheFIRST Wed 05-Jun-13 20:25:17

70+70 done

wibblyjelly Thu 06-Jun-13 10:13:51

190!! Almost there grin . Once I get up to 250 I think I'm going to split them up, and do 125 in the morning, and 125 at night.

Salbertina Thu 06-Jun-13 10:20:46

Wow! 60 plus 60 done.

sybilfaulty Thu 06-Jun-13 10:39:47

Some great squatting here girls, not to mention the dipping and crunching!

I have done 40 this am and will do another 40 later on. Am actually quite enjoying it though I can really feel it!

Just found this thread & will be starting tonight.

I must YouTube everything first though.

I'm not the most coordinated of people so I suspect flailing will be involved grin

wibblyjelly Thu 06-Jun-13 10:49:12

Welcome having grin

Thank you smile

I'm actually looking forward to this a bit

I've just started cycling/walking half an hour a day so this should also help me on my way to toning up

wibblyjelly Thu 06-Jun-13 16:36:45

im doing c25k as well. It all helps grin

sybilfaulty Sat 08-Jun-13 08:51:11

I did 80 yesterday and today is a rest day. Hurray! Tomorrow is a hundred though. Yikes! Will be worth it for the buns of steel though.

How are you all doing ?

wibblyjelly Sat 08-Jun-13 19:27:01

Just realised I should have done 200 today, it have been supporting dh at his tough mudder event, so not had time to do mine today sad

Salbertina Sat 08-Jun-13 19:35:50

75 today. Intrigued by those tough muddets, how was it?

wibblyjelly Sat 08-Jun-13 19:39:48

He did really good. His team completed the 11.5 mile course in 4 hours. He has just been telling me about some of the obstacles, including crawling under tanks in mud, running through live electric wires, and swimming in a skip of freezing water. Rather him than me, he is a mass of bruises at the moment. So proud of him grin

Salbertina Sat 08-Jun-13 19:42:28

Wow! Have only run thro live electric wires by accidentgrin
Can see why you're proud, he did well! And, to quote earlier poster, does HE at least have buns of steel??

wibblyjelly Sat 08-Jun-13 19:45:33

Not buns of steel, more like buns of aluminium. grin

sybilfaulty Sun 09-Jun-13 20:38:16

100 done while no 3 son in bath! Am expecting to be in pain tomorrow. Am loving the programme. How are you all doing?

Just remembered I'd joined this thread & did my first 50.

Thigh burn!!!

Will report back on stiffness in the morning grin

wibblyjelly Sun 09-Jun-13 21:59:25

Forgive me squatters, for I have sinned. It has been 2 days since my last squattage. In penance, I shall complete 210 squatsa first thing tomorrow morning as I really can't be arsed to do them tonight!smile

wibblyjelly Mon 10-Jun-13 11:30:55

Squats done!

Salbertina Mon 10-Jun-13 11:37:51

Well done on your squattage!

Just done 80 squats and 100 dips grin

I am too scared of dips. I've promised myself I'll dig out my weights tonight though.

Not aching too badly today - will do 60 tonight

Salbertina Mon 10-Jun-13 13:14:29

Dips are good in that they're also squats, so hard, but 2 for the price of 1 (or so i like to tell myself!)

70 last night, plus some weights for my arms & some sit ups.

Actually looking forward to some more tonight hmm grin

Salbertina Tue 11-Jun-13 09:22:29

Well done! Not such an off day esp if you want to do more grin

Just done 100 squats & 100 dips. Can already feel bingo wings triceps a little tighter. Rest day tomorrow smile

Salbertina Tue 11-Jun-13 09:30:43

Oh, not a rest day tomorrow. Oh well

wibblyjelly Wed 12-Jun-13 08:15:24

Looked at the chart, and realised I've messed up on the numbers. So I've done 250 this morning!

Salbertina Wed 12-Jun-13 08:35:45

My goodness, Wibbly, well done! When are you going to peak as it were?!

Just done 110 squats, 110 dips, now some resistance stuff and Pilates stretches. Phew.

Salbertina Wed 12-Jun-13 08:59:13

<and am walking like an old woman. And speak as someone who has long, long ago run a marathon>

wibblyjelly Wed 12-Jun-13 09:20:13

Morning Sal!

The main aim was to get up to 250, so I think I've peaked this morning. When I go back to work, I'll probably have to split them into a morning and evening session of 125 each.

A rest day for me, but I've just looked at the numbers again and I've jumped ahead a bit shock

I did 50, 60, then 70 on my first 3 days.

Should I just start at 80 tomorrow & push on? Don't suppose there's any point NOT doing that unless anyone advises differently?

Thanks smile

wibblyjelly Wed 12-Jun-13 21:47:40

I'd go for the 80. You know you can get up to that number, so no sense in going backwards grin

Salbertina Thu 13-Jun-13 07:12:18

No-one else walking like an old woman or just me?!
Rest day today grin

That's what I though wibbly smile

wibblyjelly Thu 13-Jun-13 14:08:43

250 donegrin . I'm also gearing up for a 5k run for the first time tonight. Fingers crossed I do it

D0oinMeCleanin Thu 13-Jun-13 14:15:20

My trainer advised doing the 30 day squat challenge with burpees instead of squats to tone the whole body and increase fitness.

I knew I'd heard of it from MN but had no idea how many squats/burpees you were supposed to do. I assumed you'd do 1 on day 1, 2 on day 2, 3 on day 3....

50 burpees in a row mwhahahahahaha <dies laughing>

Squats I can manage. I might join in when my cold buggers off.

What's a burpee?

D0oinMeCleanin Thu 13-Jun-13 14:36:32

Eeevil burpees

I hate them. Trainer loves them sad

wibblyjelly Thu 13-Jun-13 14:42:33

I would fall flat on my face doing those shock

Megsdaughter Thu 13-Jun-13 15:44:34

Did my first 50. Not to bad but I have been doing 20 mins aerobics every day for last few months.

I used to be able to burpees in my dim & distant past.

I would definitely fall over after 1 or 2 now though.

I might try one later for a laugh, will report back grin

Please report back, Offdaygrin
I am giving the squats a miss today. I did my first 5k run yesterday night (1 hour!) so am feeling it today. Going up and down stairs is certainly interesting today grin

Salbertina Fri 14-Jun-13 11:46:48

I did 1 burpee .. <cough> for a laugh... Nearly killed me grin
My knees & pelvic floor are not what they were hmm

However, 115 squats & dips completed

Megsdaughter Fri 14-Jun-13 16:43:45

Did 55 today. Not feeling too much pain ( apart from my arse)

KneeDeepInDaisies Wed 19-Jun-13 19:56:48

Aargh I've done nothing for ages so came back today with 30 squats sad and 50 dips.

Salbertina Fri 21-Jun-13 05:19:01

Been squatting & dipping but forgot to post upto 135 now. Rest day today grin

Salbertina Sun 23-Jun-13 15:06:31

Hey, Knee, just you and me here?! Wi-i-b-b-l-y!!! Are you there (or tough mudder watching)?

wibblyjelly Sun 23-Jun-13 15:51:08

Hi, I'm still here. Not been doing the squats thoughsad . Tomorrow is another day, and I will do 250. The running side of things has taken over, but it's no excuse to stop squatting grin

GobblersKnob Tue 02-Jul-13 09:41:52

Is anyone else still doing this?

Am on day 13 and it is haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard grin (and I haven't even done it properly).

Salbertina Tue 02-Jul-13 20:12:56

Yes. Am varying a bit now though- plie squats, slow squats, fast ones, with weights etc otherwise body gets used yo it. .think its a great psychological exercise and quick fix but not sustainable in longterm. Got to 150 dips and 150 squats now incorporating into a balanced weight resistance training

Is anyone still doing this challenge?

I started yesterday and would love to see who else is doing it grin

JohnSnowsTie Mon 12-Aug-13 13:20:41

Started today! Anyone else?

I also started a 30 Day Tricep Dip Challenge on Friday. Today'a a rest day from that. smile

Anyone feeling/looking better for the squat challenge? Also is it OK to split them into sets or should they be done all at once?

Chelvis Tue 13-Aug-13 22:22:08

I'm going to start this tomorrow - my bum and legs need SERIOUS work! Did anyone see weight loss results or is it more for toning?

RubySlippers77 Sun 18-Aug-13 20:08:13

Hi John - how are you getting on? I'll be starting over the bank holiday weekend..... where do I find the details of the Tricep Dip challenge? In for a penny, etc.....!
