So I've decided that on going to start the 30 day squat challenge but I'm going to throw in some of my own ideas. Do you think it will make the challenge more effective if I add weights or jump squats for half of my squats daily? Like do half normal squats and half weighted? Opinions are much appreciated :)

I think adding weights would make it extra tough but fun. Count me in

Okay day 1 starts now! :)

I am in the last few days of a squat challenge, the amount increases each day (not sure if its the same one you are talking about here?) if I'm doing them at home I mix it up a lot; weighted, plié or sumo, jump, an often do them on the BOSU ball. Definitely steps it up and makes them more effective! Either way, squats are better than no squats =) good luck everyone!

Day 1 done!
20 regular squats, 15 pulse squats, 15 sumo squat (with weight).
I tried to really focus on the perfect form and not rushing it. And after 5.7 km of run & walk, I can feel the effects of squats to my thighs and butts.
I'm excited!

I have a question. The challenge that we're doing now is the one that written on Brittany's previous pic (which was taken off by Skimble), right?
So the numbers of squats should increase everyday, and there's a rest day every four day. I dont really remember the numbers though, I think it's something like 50-55-60, then 80-85-90, 120-125-130, 160-165-170, and so on.
Did I get it right? Please cmiiw guys, thanks!

13 May
I think that's right lol
13 May
Hahahaha LOL! So I'll just increase the number everyday until it reaches 250 on day 30, then. Thanks guys!
