Done, plus a few extra minutes (planks and tricep exercise).

A question Realfoodieclub - I am a bit confused by the instructions for the squats. '2 sets of 15-24 reps'. Can you explain the 'set' - is it simply squat down, then stand up = 1 set? Also is the squat position 'held' and if so for how long? I have seen videos of people doing squats and they bend and straighten legs quite quickly. I have been holding the squat position! Thank you! :)

I have always done squats up and then down in a controlled motion, no holding as such. I was going for 1 Min of squats up and down as slow and as far down that is comfortable without pain but you can feel it working the muscle. I was always taught to start like you are going to sit down so you feel it in the glutes rather than the thighs first. Does that make sense.
