Are you ready for a 30 Day Squat Challenge? Whether you have just started working out, or you are an old pro, this challenge is an excellent way to push yourself. Squats are one of the best ways you can build muscle and strength in your legs and glutes. If you haven’t realized it yet, those leg muscles do a ton of work, even in just everyday activities. Building them up for better strength is a must!
30 Day Squat Challenge
This one will have you squatting until you are sick of squats – but don’t stop! Finish strong! You may need to modify or re-arrange the rest days depending on your workout routine and when you actually train your legs. You do not have to do all the listed squats at one time…you can split them up throughout the day.
Should I ask my doctor before I begin this challenge?
Yes! If you aren’t already talking to your physician about your exercise regimen, definitely begin today. While doing this squat challenge may not be hard or dangerous for some people, it might be for you. I always want you to be safe, and that means checking in with your doctor before you do any new physical activity that could potentially be dangerous to your body.
Note: Squats are not typically a dangerous exercise, however, for those who have back or hip injuries, it can exacerbate those. Always be careful and follow medical instructions first and foremost.
What if I have never done a squat before?
Don’t fear! While it sounds like it can be hard, they really aren’t difficult to do. We even have a video tutorial to show you how to do a bodyweight squat (see below).
Take things slowly as you begin the squat challenge. As mentioned above, if you need to split the number up into a few different times during the day, that is okay. Just be careful and follow proper form.
Pro Tip: When you first begin, start by doing a squat over a kitchen chair. This will help you learn when your body is at the correct angle. It also is helpful for those who may be a bit unsteady to begin.

Exercise is so important to your overall health. As we embraced a clean eating lifestyle, I knew we needed to incorporate dedicated time to exercise. While cardio like walking, jogging, or rowing is a great way to burn calories and build endurance, it is the muscle that truly helps your body burn fat.
