    1,000 squat challenge

    Can you do 1,000 squats in one training session? I'm going to try to do it. I don't intend to try to do 1000 off the bat, I'm going to build up to it how ever long that takes (weeks? months?).

    The inspiration for this is this video that I watched today:



    She does 1000 squats (with no weights) mostly in sets of 100 but with 2 sets of 50, and most of the sets are a slight variation on how to do them.

    If you're going to try it, make sure you don't end up in intensive care like a couple of Chinese teenagers did. Work up to the full amount.

    Anyway, the video is worth a watch even if you're not going to do the challenge (fit female in shorts squatting repeatedly and sometimes throwing her legs apart ).

    Who's up for the challenge?
    Nev has style

    Get the watching but she's young and that kind of repetition will see her wear out joints before she's 40. Not trying to be negative but reps have to be age tailored. Its funny how manny bloggers everyone follows, how long will they last?

    Really?

    I guess if you can muster 6 ^ for that then you can't be living in Asia.

    I did 10 last night before I went to bed and I just did 10 a few minutes ago. A long way to go.

    I'm struggling a bit to see what the benefit of doing 1,000 squats in a session would be? It wouldn't be more anabolic than, for e.g., 20 reps of high-bar / weighted squats and there are plenty of more beneficial aerobic exercises also.

    So just for the challenge maybe? But even that comes with a pretty high downside in potential injury...

    Dunno really. I fucking hate squats of all kinds regardless so I went and got a leg press: the lazy man's squat rack.

    Absolutely, People jump on some latest kick not taking into consideration, age, health and current capabilities. Makes me laugh. Example are the guys late in life that take up jogging and pound the cartilage out in their knees which usually requires surgery and become a gimp.

    My doc doesn't advise me to do any squats because of my knees.

    I'm still doing this and working my way up to 1,000. I've added a minimum of 10 squats each day to the total so far. Today I did 320 squats (8 sets of 40 with 30s rest between sets). Another 2 months and I should reach 1,000.

    The aim is to do 1,000 in one session - 10 sets of 100 with short breaks (about 30s) in between. I'm working up to that.

    Once I've achieved that goal, I won't be doing 1,000 per day, though I will probably keep up doing them but not so many per day.





    * I've just edited my 9.31pm post. I did 320 today not 420.

    Don't see the point Nev.

    Stick 100kgs on your shoulders and do 3 sets of 8 if you want to crack walnuts
