You up for a squat challenge?

This is a post by PumpUp member @cicilovinthis

Social media is an incredibly powerful medium for motivation. I sat down one day and thought to myself, “How can I help motivate people like me? People who want to become healthier versions of themselves?”

This is how I came up with my social media challenge: one where everyone can help you reach your goal. It all starts with this picture. You post it to any social media site. Wait a couple days to ensure you get as much likes as possible.

Then you post a video to YouTube doing the amount of squats challenged. Also tag others in the video to do this challenge. This is a great way to test yourself and others. Make a community of support and motivation just like the pumpupapp community! 

I hope that this challenge is fulfilling for you, both physically and mentally.
