Wanna get stronger without getting super buff? Join VIDA Metropole’s training team on a 30-day squat challenge during the month of April. With Cory Gregory’s guidance on bodybuilding.com, we’ll be incorporating just 10-20 minutes of squat variations into our workouts EVERY day for 30 days. This can replace your leg day, or you could try his recommended weekly workout pairings (squat/chest, squat/back, etc.) to round out your weight training. We’ll be posting short videos on our Instagram (@vidafitnessdc) & Facebook page throughout the month to help you understand how to set yourself up for each of the workouts. Follow along and tag your progress #vidasquatchallenge #vidafit for the chance to win prizes and get likes! 🙂
A few things to remember!
- Warm up should always be 3 minutes of biking + 5 minutes of walking lunges
- Rep scheme will always be 2 sets of 10 reps, 2 sets of 5 reps, 3 sets of 3 reps, and 3 sets of 1 rep, gradually increasing weight
- Be safe! Workout with a trainer, buddy, or only as much weight as you can handle without breaking good form
Prepare to feel increased overall strength and a HUGE sense of accomplishment come May 1st!
