June Challenge: Fitfluential’s Squat Challenge #FFSquat


I haven’t really posted much about being a Fitfluential Ambassador, but I’ve been one since about April now. They run a lot of awesome tweet chats as well as giveaways and challenges. I haven’t had a whole lot of time to participate in challenges recently, but I figured I’d give their June squat challenge a go, especially since it could help with my running and my dancing.

It’s relatively simple–they’re asking beginners to aim for 1,000 squats in the month of June (which is what I’ll be going for) and for those who are more advanced to aim for 100 a day.  I’ll try and keep a running  update weekly on the site as to how I’m doing!

You can use this guide to keep track, too and join the Facebook event here. In addition, Fitfluential is also giving away a Polar Heart Rate Monitor here.


Squats Challenge and Splits Challenge

Although I’ve loved doing challenges (ab challenges, splits challenges, you name it), I’ve been horrible at actually keeping up with them. This time I have some fellow bloggers keeping me motivated with this awesome 30 day Squat challenge, and a competition with HQ of Run Play Sleep (my boyfriend) to keep me motivated to get my splits.

30 Day Squat Challenge

Syreeta of Sincerely Syreeta started this challenge on Instagram and invited other people to join her so we could keep ourselves motivated. Today is my Day 3.


I’ve split my squats between plie/sumo squats and normal body weight squats.

If you’re interested in joining us, you can learn more and connect with Syreeta on Twitter. Read more about Syreeta in my interview with her for Campus Philly.

Splits Challenge

This is more a competition than it is a challenge. Hq and I are competing by safely stretching every day to see who can get their splits first. The person who achieves them first owes the other a dinner out. I’ll be posting updates relatively frequently on this challenge.

How do you motivate yourself? Do you participate in challenges like diet bets and 30 day challenges?
