Last month I found an app of a squat challenge, thirty days long. First day 10, second day 15, progressing up to 230 on the 30th day.
On Friday I did 250 (over achiever that I am) and completed the challenge. Because of my bad knees I was very careful with each squat and never fully dropped to the lowest position in a squat as I am technically not allowed to do squats if I want to avoid knee replacement a few more years. At no time was I in pain, or swollen. At no time did I bend or rise and go "ah-oh".
I didn't do this thinking it would make me lose weight, get healthy or find salvation. I did it to challenge myself to do something small for 30 days because I never thought I could get to 230, let along 250.
I am planning to start a thirty day plank challenge next.
What is your next challenge?
