    Can I join in late? I've also been meaning to do one of those 30 day challenges on line, but I need someone to keep me accountable. I used to have a great butt. Then I injured my foot and couldn't stand properly for 5 months, and then I was pregnant and so sick I could hardly move, and then I fractured my coccyx having DS. 2.5 years of doing pretty well nothing has turned it into a pancake. I want my butt back!

    Once you have mastered the squats try doing them on your tip toes, great for your calf muscles and boy do you really feel it. Lunges are great too.

    Really? All the gyms and PT I've been to over the years have told me to never squat on toes as bad for your back. There are other ways to improve calf muscles. I'd be careful about doing it on toes myself as I know I'd fall over and I've been weightlifting for a while.

    Right. I'm in. Late, but I'm in!

    Did 40 and tried to pulse at the end. Pulsed twice before falling on to the couch. Lol. Got a long way to go.

    Thanks for the challenge!

    My Physio told me to do similar. Bend into a squat position then raise onto you toes and down again repeatedly but keep the squat hold static. Burns nicely 😊. Pulses are also good.

    80+ done today (80 just now, plus some in the park earlier but I was watching DS not counting! 😂).

    Not sure what PP meant but the up down toes thing is what I was told 😊.

    Not that I have been doing it, I should add that in!

    Yep this. I started doing them myself years ago and then it was recommended to me from a physio when I had physio after baby. It takes a while to get good balance though.
    Always loved doing squats.
