The Total Gym team is taking the 30 Day Squat Challenge!
The benefits of squats are numerous. This one simple move doesn’t just develop the muscles of the lower body (legs, glutes, abs and lower back), Â but provides a complete cardio workout.
According toÂ Dr. Mercolaâ€™s Peak Fitness, squats are an essential total-body exercise. They’re one of the best functional exercises that anyone can do, whether standing on the floor or laying on a Total Gym.
And aside from getting stronger, sexier “stems”, squats Â help build endurance and improve flexibility whileÂ promoting balance, mobility,Â fat burning, and body-wide muscle development.
So how does the 30 Day Squat Challenge work?
On day one, do 50 squats consecutively. After that, each day you do squats, increase the number of repetitions by 5 and then rest (do NO leg exercises) every fourth day. The day after each rest-day, you should add 10 more reps than the last day you did your squats. The final 8 days of exercise, increase reps by 20 instead of 10.
So join us for the next month and by November you’ll be boasting about the benefits of squatting too!
