Cool heading right? Wohoooo!
The SQUATcember challenge will generally involve the basic bodyweight squat, which is a foundational move during training. Not only does squatting help improve your balance and coordination, but also helps develop core mobility, hips, ankles and knees. With that in mind, i dare you to a 21 day squatting challenge this December (scroll down below for the challenge). Celebrate this beautiful holiday season with a few squats and lots of happiness filled with joy.
To get moving:
- Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, resting your arms straight down at your sides.
- Tightening your core and keeping a proud chest (chest forward), begin to push your hips back, bending your knees as if you’re going to sit down with your arms. Ensure that your knees do not cave in. When your thighs are parallel to the floor, pause.
- Push up evenly through your whole foot back to the starting position.
- Repeat this movement until your set is complete.
