How to sneak 100 squats into your daily routine for SPECTACULAR results
1. While cooking
Waiting for the oven to heat, or letting your Stove Top Lasagne bubble away? Don’t use this time to scroll through Facebook! Get some squats in like Julia Meadows does. Read more about how Julia manages to fit squatting into her day.
2. Folding the laundry
If you have children, you probably have laundry to do, and lots of it! Sam Stevenson puts on music and does her squats as she is folding her laundry. “It makes the whole process of laundry so much more fun! I can easily do 100 squats during this one activity,” says Sam.
3. Waiting for the kids to get dressed
Anyone with kids knows how stressful it is waiting for your kids to get dressed or put their shoes on! It brings a whole new meaning to ‘snail pace!’. Courtney Trotter uses the time it takes for her children to put on their shoes every day to smash out her squats. Not only does it make her feel great, it reduces that stressed feeling.
4. The supermarket
No shame here! Nikola Green proves that any place is a good place for a few squats. Even the grocery store! Ok, you may get a few weird looks but if you have seen Nikola’s amazing 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge transformation results you will be squatting your way around the grocery store too.
5. Waiting for the kettle to boil
If you are partial to coffee or tea and find yourself drinking several cups a day you will be amazed how many squats you can do while waiting for the kettle to boil. 5 cups a day and 20 squats each time. You will easily be smashing out 100 before dinner time. Waiting for the kettle to boil is where Chloe Cox smashes out her 100 squats.
6. With clingy children onboard
Got a child that always wants to be held? No problem. Julia Meadows also squeezes her squats in with her daughter onboard! And check out Julia’s booty transformation!
7. Scenic view squats
Lauren da Silva likes to take breaks while she is out walking to do her squats. While we don’t necessarily encourage you doing your squats at the edge of a cliff, a great view or point of interest can make your squats that much more enjoyable.
8. Walking the dog
Jenny McPhail stops to do her squats while doing her daily walk with her dog. Warning – your dog might bowl you over in their excitement of having you down at their level (as Jenny discovered), but it is definitely worth it.
Thanks to all the mums in the Healthy Mummy community for sharing their squatting photos and tips with us and our readers.
