I saw some things on Pinterest last night about doing this 30 Day Squat Challenge. I was curious if anyone has ever done it before and if so did you get the results you desired? Also, after doing this what would I have to do to "maintain" the area affected by the challenge. Thanks!

^^^^^ This I have been asking the same thing?

I think I saw that on instagram!!!

Use it so you don't lose it! So... Yes you'd have to maintain. And yes it would make you stronger and have a nicer butt. Of course it depends on what shape you were in before you started! For those who can do a million squats with no weights, they'd have to do weighted squats...

I've been doing it for a while, and its great.
Tightening and lifting my booty...makes it look bigger in a good way.
Great for getting your heart pumping too!
Love it.

I modified it to 60 days and added crunches and pushups - along with my regular routine:

I'm going to be honest. I used to HATE doing squats and I could only do about 10-15 at a time. I did the 30 day challenge and man has it made a difference. At one point, I was doing 100 squats per day. The main reason I started the 30 day challenge is because I wanted a firmer butt. I can honestly say the squats helped a lot. now I can't stay out of the mirror and I am always feeling on my butt, lol. But seriously, I did get the desired results.

I just finished the 30 day squat challenge yesterday and it was tough but do-able!! The one I did finished at 250 squats on the last day, which I completed yesterday. It felt like a huge victory when I did that last squat, especially on Mother's Day! I felt like I had given MYSELF the gift of better health and a better body. To answer your other questions, I noticed a huge difference in my thighs and butt. I'm 42 yoa, 5'7", and 178 lbs (down from 213). I carry most of my weight around my middle, but I had a lot of loose skin on my inner thighs and a few dimples on the backs of my thighs. The squat challenge really firmed up my thighs and lifted my bum!! I know that one cannot spot-reduce fat from the body, but I know for sure you can tone and firm the muscles underneath and that really improves the appearance of the problem areas. I'm not sure what one would have to do to maintain that, I'm no workout expert, but I figure that I can easily bust out 50 or even 100 squats a day to maintain the improvements I've achieved. Hope this helps and I say go for it!!

I am loving your chart I am going to try this by adding it my routine.

Day 1 completed!!! I'm really excited to see what this will do to my butt, hips and lower abs happy

Anyone else seen great results within the first 15 days? I am in a wedding in August and let's put it this way....the dress shows the lumps and I need to tone my legs because it is super short.

I'm going to try it. I just didn't know what you'd have to do to maintain it I guess. I want to still be able to do my cardio so we'll see how sore my legs are after I start it =D
May 14, 2013 1:59 PM
I have only just heard about it, so started today : ) to be honest i didn't think i'd be able to do it, but actually it was ok, i'm sure i will feel it tomorrow!!
Glad to hear that others have had good results : )

I'm almost done with it! I've got three more days to go. My husband says he has noticed a difference with my rear, haha.

oooh way to go! I'm just worried that if I do it I won't be able to keep up with my 30-45 minutes of cardio during the week

last week I had to take my measurements. My thighs and legs were more firm and a bit smaller. My butt was higher and bigger. I was halfway. However, I do also wallsit, plank and crunches. I'm on day 20. Can't wait to see the final results. ^.^

I'm starting soon!

I started the 30 day squat challenge yesterday and OMG my legs feel weak like jello but I'm proud I did it

I am on day 17 of the squat challenge, and i am definitely noticing a difference! my butt is smaller and firmer, and I love it! I didn't think it'd work or be noticeable but it definitely is. it's hard but you won't regret it!

My husband and I are on day 11 of the 30 squat and 30 day crunch challenge. It is going well so far. smile
May 20, 2013 11:15 AM
Finished this challenge today. I really noticed a difference in my strength and stamina. Day one was tougher than day 30! My butt and legs are certainly more toned now. I am going to try and incorporate squats into my daily routine from now on.

Today I am starting the 30 day crunch challenge in it's place. :) Just took waist measurements to see how it goes.
