Getting your butt ready for the beach? Bikini season is already here, almost at its height, and really there is not much time to get in shape and make your butt firmer. So, take either one of the squat challenges described below and you’ll be ready within a month – just in the height of the summer bikini season.
Well, honestly I don’t see any other major differences (except for the ones listed above). Whichever squat challenge plan you pick is not of such great importance. What matters is – you should get serious and start squatting regularly. Stick to the plan you choose and don’t miss a day hoping to make up for the squats count on the next day. That would ruin your efforts so far and most likely would mean you don’t deserve the sexy bikini body you desire.
Squats are a compound exercise, working the upper legs and the glutes. Therefore the quadriceps muscles and gluteus maximus (the ones doing the largest amount of work during squatting) are more likely to get sore. And excessive squat workouts (such as those holiday challenge plans) could strain muscles not only of the legs and butt. Soreness can occur in upper and lower back, even shoulders and upper arms (arms are extended during squats exercising (remember?))
No matter how sporty you might feel, it is highly likely to get muscle strains after Day 1 of either squat challenge plans. Take an anti-inflammatory medication after the workout. You’ll be as good as new on the following day. Fit and ready to continue our squat challenge.
As soon as you roll out of bed, make a coffee and/or grab a healthy snack like some sort of season’s fruit – you’ll be ready to do the squats. Get sweaty, burn some calories and tighten those thighs and butt. Don’t forget to drink water after the workout. Then take a shower and you’ll be ready to face your everyday challenges.
Choose light and healthy foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It would be pointless to stuff yourself like a Thanksgiving turkey with a rich breakfast and then do the squatting. Late evening or night workouts are also not recommended. After a stressful day at work a late evening squat exercise would be a great stress reliever, but don’t expect your butt and thighs to get firmer quickly.
P.S. I promise you that – even on the Day 7 of your Squat Challenge you will start noticing the results – more tight and firm butt and thighs.
GOOD LUCK Everyone!
