In my eyes, air squatting vs. squatting with weights is like jogging on the spot vs. actual jogging. Yes you can do it and there will be ~some~ benefit but you’re selling yourself short and its unlikely you’ll get the results you want through air squatting a random arbitrary number given to you on a specific day.
Plus there are so many different types of squat you can do that will have actual benefits, back barbell squat, front squat, kettlebell squats, goblet squats, overhead squats, pistol squats la la la, etc. And they are infinitely more fun!
I also dislike how the calendar chart is usually placed over the image of a beautiful round bottom. You know nothing about this girl, her nutrition, her genetics, her exercise routine. She is likely squatting A LOT of weight to build solid muscle like that and she’s probably never done 30 days of air squats in her life.
My biggest problem is that (and this is an attitude I hate generally, no matter the subject) people want a quick fix, they want instant results by doing 30 days of squatting and then NEVER HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN because they have a Kardashian-worthy ass. Beautiful bodies made in the gym take months, most likely YEARS of hard work and consistency, but I think the majority of people don’t want to accept that, they’d like to think air squatting for a month will change their body forever.
Bottom (ha I’m so funny) line, doing the 30 day squat challenge won’t kill you, but it probably won’t do much else either. Get reading up on squatting with weight and see the benefits for yourself, which by the way are amazing.
Ahh I thought it was haha, It isn’t haha, it’s insane to think that it’s close!! THank you, you too! x
