Okay, every girl on my facebook seems to have jumped on this bandwagon. So I googled it. To me it seems like one hell of a lot of over-training of a single muscle group. Thoughts?

If your body is up to it than it will be fine. You can't know its over training just by looking at some numbers. More girls doing squats can never be a bad thing lol

I'd do that many bodyweight squats getting in and out of my chair every day, I'm sure they can manage.

Being body weight, people shouldn't be too sore the following day. But it's all subjective based on your own body weight and how in shape you are.

Girls saying they'll exercise on somethin as public yet directive at an allocated group of people as Facebook and actually following through with it is 2 very different things.

We'll see :lol:

It also assumes people know how to squat.

Just another weaksauce challenge to appeal to women who baulk at the idea of doing hard work to tone their arse, like reps of hill runs or flights of steps.
It's less effort than real training and all they have to do is complete the challenge to feel like they've accomplished something, rather than only feeling a sense of accomplishment after months of hard work, when the improvement in strength and tone is actually apparant.

It's no different to the instant gratification people get purely from finishing the City To Surf, no matter how pathetic their time is. Were they to train properly and compete in local races, they would only feel proud after a fair amount of training and their times have dropped to a respectable level.

Any challenge in which the goal is simply to 'complete the event' is setting the bar fairly low imo, but I'm a bit of an asshole in that sense.

I was simply stating that overtraining is not a recognised excuse in sports science.

you know what, if you did this with pistol or shrimp squats and or load up with a vest or a couple of weighted packs, it would be one hell of a 30 day challenge...

Registered solely based of seeing this thread..

I'll be polite in saying this - the challenge originally posted is by far one of the most retarded fads ever. 100-250 squats isn't overtraining, it's called a warm-up and break between sets of actually doing regular barbell squats/lunges/bulgarian squats..

Sure, it's great for beginners who've just bought their first gym membership, but utterly insulting to those who aren't your average couch sloth..

Just my .02 eur cents..
