September Squat-fest!

Posted by on August 30, 2013

Today’s blog is for everyone – students, parents, siblings, friends.  You can even email it out to your relatives and make it a family challenge!  The ancient Korean secret to stronger kicks is stronger legs, but just because you don’t take class doesn’t mean you can’t have strong legs too.  Our monthly 5 Minute Fitness challenges are designed to be done in a super short time period so there are no excuses.  You don’t have to do all of the squats at once, but you can if you want.  When will you ever find the time to spend 5 minutes each day getting stronger?  Well you could do it:

  • While you wait for your coffee to brew
  • While you wait for the shower to heat up
  • While you are brushing your teeth (and be sure to brush the full two minutes!)
  • During commercial breaks
  • With a buddy at the end of class
  • While talking on the phone
  • While yelling at your husband for not unloading the dishwasher (but that might make you look a little crazy)

I could go on, but you get the idea, right?  Print the calendar and put a big red X through each day when you’re finished.  You can even print one for each person in your house (even kids can do bodyweight exercises like squats to get stronger) and make a plan to do the challenge together.  You can also download a pdf version here.  Ready, set, squat!
