Weekend Challenge: All In One Bone Building Squat
Today, I’m thrilled to announce the brand new Save Our Bones Weekend Challenge. I understand that you are busy (life happens!), so I truly hope that it’ll be easier for you to focus on the important bone health ideas I’ll bring you during the weekend.
As always, I want to make sure that you’re motivated to stay on track, and that you’ll have fun applying the bone-healthy actions. Because one thing is certain: each challenge will supercharge your bone-building success.
And to help everyone in the community stay motivated and actively involved, please leave your thoughts and ideas at the bottom of the post.
How The Weekend Challenge Works
On Weekend Challenge days, you’ll receive one challenge that you can easily do. Once you’re done with it, you can leave a comment on your challenge completion. As I mentioned earlier, this will greatly motivate our community.
My goal is for you to achieve your bone-building goals faster, so let’s get started with…
Weekend Challenge #1: All In One Squat
Why: This exercise strengthens your legs, glutes, arms, back, and shoulders. It also improves your posture.
As Savers know, the pressure of muscle on bone greatly helps increase your bone density. But there’s more than that: when your legs and core are strong, your balance improves, thus preventing dangerous falls.
And here’s another exciting bonus: when your posture is aligned you’ll have a more youthful and attractive appearance. And did I mention that you’ll also feel great (and accomplished)?
How: You can do the All-In-One Squat with 1 to 3 lb weights or with two cans of food. If it’s too difficult with the weights or cans, simply start without them.
- Stand with your feet about 1 1/2 feet apart, heels in and toes out.
- Place your hands (with or without weights) toward the inside of your thighs, palms facing each other.
- Bend your knees outward while keeping you back straight and your knees aligned with the tip of your toes.
- As you come up, squeeze the glutes and raise your hands up to the ceiling.
- Bring the arms back down, and repeat.
- Don’t rush the moves; it’s better to keep good control, and repeat at least 10 times or as many times as you comfortably can.
So this is your Weekend Challenge for today. I’m looking forward to getting your feedback, motivational ideas, and more in the comment section below. And stay tuned for more Weekend Challenges in the near future.
Till next time,
