Squat Challenge Day six. The End of the Week is Nigh

good morning my strong strong friends, as Megsquats would say.

Today is day six of week one of the challenge and your last squatting day before the weekend of partial rest and recuperation. Hope you are all keeping your form tight and your stays loose. I hope you feel you are progressing. I hope you all had fun with the videoing.

Read. Enjoy. Skwaat.

Cleanse. Fold. Manipulate.

Cleanse, Fold, Manipulate......That sounds like a skincare routine for old people like me!!!

I have done it and I have feedback from the master which is helpful, thankyou!

All done - still working on my technique. Are squats harder for tall folk, I wonder? Longer levers etc?? Or am I making excuses! First time I've managed squats and not ended up with a sore knee....thank you.

I don't think my form is right yet either Sandra. I'm going to ask my physio. And I haven't got sore knees either which I always had before.

OMG I don't think I've been doing this right. I've been making my family do 20 or 30 x 10 ie the rep total is 2/300. Did he just mean 20 total? No bloody wonder I'm walking like a robot.

Well we have a winner. The whole point of the 'easy onramp' to learning teh squat with proper form as an alternative to the usual 30 day challenge was they they have insane volume for beginners, and that 200 anything at the end of a month is unrealistic. You have jumped straight in to 2 or 300 a day from day one... presumably 400 on day six seemed a bit steep?

Well done on the squats. Not so well done on the instruction reading. Not so well done me for making the rep/set structure more explicit. Will make sure I correct that tomorrow for W2.

Yes no wonder you feel a little stiff. On the plus side W2 is going to feel like a doddle for you now. Once the muscle soreness wears off.

Oops, I must admit I thought it a bit cheeky saying it was a beginner programme, then others smugly chipping in with " yes, did it after my run like no bother." Easy peasy. While I'm hobbling to work. So yes more form and we'll kill next week. I'll practise my reading this weekend, lol.

I'm a day behind so 40 today! Doing them in my running shoes made a big difference to my form and hips. I think I'm bending too far forwards so will ask my physio this am to check my form. She's giving me a sports massage 😩
