Can I do 1000 Squats?

 

So ummmm guys!

This just happened. I did 1000 squats non stop and nearly died and went to fitness heaven. It was…EUPHORIC.

You know, I wasn’t going to upload the full length 40 min workout because  I thought it was too long (literally took like 7+ hours to upload to YouTube!!) but since y’all thumbs up’d my comment over 2,000 times…

1000 squats comments

I took some time this weekend to edit the full length video! So far looks like a ton of you crazy POPsters have already attempted and/or completed the challenge. Like seriously, you are LITERAL BEASTS.

This workout is NOT EASY by any means. So if you feel like you’re in pain and you need a break, please, take one. If today you can do 20 and next week you can do 30, then one day you will get into the hundreds then the big 1000. It takes time.

What I love most about your comments on YouTube so far is that you’re posting how many you were able to do! I like that you don’t feel bad that you could “only do 60″ or whatever. In fact, POPsters are encouraging each other with each of the comments! It is seriously so amazing :)

YouTube usually has a bad rep of random menacing tweens writing super mean comments under a video. This gets to us creators a lot. Sometimes makes us cry. But you know what, I’ve been fortunate that the majority of the Blogilates are not only positive…they are UPLIFTING!

That’s what I love about you guys. You’re different. You’re kind. You’re vibrant. You’re inspirational. I am so lucky to call you my POPsters. I could never ever ask for more!

Hope your weekend was splendid. I took Saturday off and went jet skiing. No pics though, but it was SUPPPPERRR fun! I love bouncing on waves and riding crazy fast on the water! I can’t handle much else though. No roller coasters. No bungee jumping. No sky diving. I can’t even do a hot air balloon.

Haha, so anyway! I want you to try the 1000 squat challenge! Remember, if you don’t make it all the way through it’s OKAY! Your legs and butt will be stronger for next time.

Oh and show me your #sweatypic after you do the workout!

Have fun and good luck!

PS – If you’re following the July Workout calendar, today just do either the 1000 Squat Challenge or the videos listed. You are not required to do both. That’s just. Crazy.
