I have been doing the 30 day squat challenge! It has been amazing. I am really feeling the burn! I have been kind of cheating. I split the number for each day between plea squats and regular squats. Sometimes I even throw in a few lunges.
Plea squats target the inner thighs. You can also lift up to your toe on your left or right side to target the area. Make sure you only do one side at a time and have the same number of reps on each side.
These are deep keen squats. The goal of a deep knee squat is to get your butt below your knees. If you are not following the proper form you more than likely will feel it in your knees. These squats will give you the best results.
Do you add weight? The USDA recommends that Americans get at least 2 days a week of strength training. Weight barring exercise can be done with body weight but once you have master body weight squats it is a good idea to more on to weights. You can use hand weights, body bars, or even kettle bells to ad weight. I am currently squatting 40 lbs. with a body bar. No more than 15 reps per set. I try to do about 10 sets per workout. If you are trying yo bulk up do a heavier weight with less reps, but if you are looking for lean muscles do a smaller weight with more reps.
Remember to stretch your thighs after your workout. For your muscles to grow long and lean you want to make sure that you have a good stretch after all workouts especially when you are working such a specific area.
An ab challenge is on the horizons for May! Get ready summer!
