Slimming Down Dad Weekly Challenge: 500 Squats

A few weeks back I was talking to my good friend Jerry Cruz and he told me about a Slim Down Challenge that he signed up for at his local Anytime Fitness. One of the aspects that I found most interesting was that he was participating in a weekly challenge.

I liked the concept so much that I decided to borrow it and incorporate it into my November ProjectOpens in a new tab.. Since the Slimming Down Dad 10K Virtual Fun Run was so much fun, I thought I’d open this up to the readers as well.

The premise is simple. Every Monday throughout the month of November I will post a weekly exercise challenge. All of the exercises will be body-weight only so that everyone can follow along at home. Feel free to modify the exercise as needed to increase / decrease difficulty to meet your needs.

Weekly Challenge - Week 1

To participate, all you have to do is perform 500 Squats between now and next Monday. Feel free to tell us how you’re doing on the Slimming Down Dad Facebook PageOpens in a new tab. or by using the #SlimmingDownDadChallenge hashtag on Social Media.
