This is a fun and more interesting way to get your daily squats in. The challenge is to squat multiple times for alternating lengths of time throughout a full song. You’ll be squatting to the song ‘Flower’ – Moby, making for a motivating challenge that makes you want to keep going for longer than you might if you were just squatting off your own accord. You can either play the song or watch a Youtube video where someone else will be doing the challenge as well.
