Usually at this time of the morning I like to bring you a snippet of up to date information from the world of Sport Science, but today is all about this midweek challenge!!
The 50/50 squat challenge involves lifting 50% of your bodyweight (easy right?!) for 50 reps in a row! If you are anything like us, you are thinking that this challenge seems really straight forward and that you could definitely complete it! Give it a try and see what you think .
For a 80kg male, this task involves you squatting 40kg for 50 reps.
For a 50kg female, this task involves you squatting 25kg for 50 reps.
50+ reps = Beast mode engaged
40-49 reps = Strong effort
30-39 reps = Average
20-29 reps= Poor
1-19 reps = DO YOU EVEN LIFT?!
Squats should be through a full range of motion, no cheating half squats please! In order for a squat to be a legal lift, the top of your legs just below the hip should reach a depth at which they are in line with/below the height of your knees as seen below.
If you reach 50 or you can do more than 50, let us know your scores by commenting on Facebook,Twitter, Google+ or directly on our blog.
