Health Challenge Day 9: 8 min of Squatting

Platinum Health Challenge Day 9: 8 Minutes of Squatting

Ready for Day 9? Sit in that squat! We all used to be able to do it… You may not be able to remember it, but before a baby can walk, it can sit in a squat. That includes you.

Keep your feet flat on the ground and find a relaxed resting squat position as low as you can. If you need a little assistance, you can elevate your heels by an inch or two using a book, ledge, or curb to make it easier on your hips. You can also hold on to something in front of you like a door frame or post if you feel you’re falling backwards.  

We find the best way to approach a challenge like this is to pick a trigger and do the task every time you walk by that trigger. For example, say your trigger is the kitchen sink. Every time you walk by the kitchen sink, hang out in a resting squat for 30 seconds. You will accumulate 8 minutes in no time!
