Squat Challenge Week 2- Hands up, Baby!

For all those of you who made it through Week 1 of the squat challenge, Well done! I am proud of you. You are on your way to glutes and hams of steel. Probably around the mild alloy stage at the moment, but that is a huge step, or squat, on from the soft fudge level we were at last week.

Instructions for Week Two are now up.

Skwaat tuff! Skwaat strong! Skwaat as though your buns depended on it (which, fo course, they very much do).

Someone did 300?! 😱 40 was plenty for me and I’m so short, my bum’s pretty near the seat to begin with!

There is an emoji of either a male or a female (with the obligatory swishy ponytail) doing overhead squats.

I done 'em last night but could not post as I was all of a-quiver. I have discovered that I have a distressing tendency to re-enact the Funky Chicken dance, as my elbows come forwards as I skwaat. I know I am recovering from a frozen or impinged shoulder, but even so, this is hard. And undignified.
