Day 19: Who’s the Squattiest?

Today is Day 19 of the Home Office Fitness: Increase Productivity & Lose Belly Fat Challenge. (<– If you'd like to join us, please do. We’ll be repeating the same series of exercises for one more week, so you can jump right in.)

Today is also the … Team Computer Butt Contest: Who’s the Squattiest?!

Every Friday during the first month of the Fat Loss Quickie program, Scott has us do 100 squats for our cardio. And, it is h-a-r-d! Well, today, we're taking it up to a new level by challenging each other to see how many squats we can do. Here's the scoop.

The 3 squattiest persons (the three who do the most squats – no weights – from now until end of day) will win prizes! We’ll all check in throughout the day, but people can continue to beat you all day long so it’s in your best interest to do your squats early, so you have time to add to them later in the day if someone blows past you.

For example, if I post 125 squats at 10 in the morning and then Ronnie posts 140, then I can go do 25 more to beat him (and of course trash-talk him) and so it goes.

Here's what you'll win:

First Place-> Your Choice of the Three Prizes Below.
Second Place-> Your Choice of the Two Remaining Prizes.
Third Place->The Prize that's left.

Update: More prizes being added! 🙂

The three prizes are:

  • $25 towards any purchase at www.EasyPLR.com
  • Copy of Homepreneur Habits (one of my favorite reports!)
  • A pair of Handerpants mailed to your home. You know you want them!
  • Susanne's Freezer Cooking Guide (e-Book). Giving you less time in the kitchen, and more time to do your Fat Loss Quickie Workouts!

So, start squatting (deep squats – no cheating!) and continue to post your updates all day long. The cool thing is that everyone wins because we'll all be losing our computer butts together.

Free Taste of the 10 Minute Quickie Workout.

Just in case, if you missed my post yesterday, here's a Sample Workout from Scott. If you don't think 10 minutes will give you the results you are looking for, I challenge you to do this workout and say that you didn't feel enough BURN! 🙂

    Signing in with 102 squats! 🙂

  • Nicole
    Reply

    Clarification: You can use weights, but they don’t count as doing any more squats than the rest of us. So don’t go saying “I did 100, but with 15 lb weights” because it still counts for 100. 😉 That was my reasoning there.

    Mom said she’d be doing 200 today. Will she be our big winner?! Go mom!!!

      My twitter stream is full of tweets from all of you, each of which has totally brightened my day.

      You all ROCK!

      Nicole. I knew this would be fun… but never did I imagine it would be this much fun.

      See… fitness really can be fun. When you create a positive atmosphere with support and camaraderie, it sure can take your mind off of they typical train of thought that, “I’ve got to do this to lose weight.”

      It’s this type of thing that leads to creating a long term healthy lifestyle.

      I love you all.

    Holy moly! I’m checking in with 0 squats, lol.

    Just had to comment that I can’t believe there are two people at 100 already. You ladies are Serious. Way to go team computer butt!

    I think I’m going to opt-out of the contest though, I started doing some squats today and my knee started making noise (which it sometimes does and it means that bone is rubbing against kneecap so I think I should take it easy today).

    You can do it!!

      Good job listening to your body Angela. If you were to ignore your body it could lead to several days off from your quickie workouts.

      Mighty proud of you!

      I usually have one day a month where my knee just does keeps popping out of place. I know that’s a definite day off for me.

      Listening to your body is key. It shows that you are applying one of the key strategies of the Fat Loss Quickie lifestyle… Awareness!

      Thanks for cheering us on.

    First let me say I can’t believe I am up before 7 and second I can’t believe I am up before 7. Wow need more coffee, but I have done 120 squats, I don’t have to win to be so amazed at myself, I mean really, I was up before 7 🙂

    Checking in with 150 squats … and boy are my legs shaking.

    Quick tip, do your squats next to a chair or the couch. As you start to get a little wobbly, keep one finger on the back of the chair or couch for balance. No cheating though, you can’t use your hands to help pull you back up 🙂

    ok. It’s 10:52 am here and I’m at 150.

    Great shoulders workout :D.

    I got 85 squats in before a rest and I’m up to 120 now. Guess the practice this week paid off.

    Hey, does age count for anything here? 😮

    As Nicole will attest, I am not really a morning person… sort of live the life of a second-shift worker, ya know?

    With that said, I DO have my FIRST 100 squats in now. My next 100 squats will be coming up. I have my good shoes on (my lucky marathon shoes… yes MARATHON shoes) so I can jump up any time I feel like it and do some more squats. Ha! Take that!

    Hey, Susanne, cool prize! I love the freezer cooking book! Spend one day cooking and use all that spare time each night to do another Quickie. Very thoughtful! 🙂

    See ya back here after my next 100! And give some thought to that whole “give a break to the ol’ lady doin’ squats” thing, okay? 😉

        The walk up to the school was “interesting”. I wasn’t completely sure I’d make it my legs were so wobbly. I guess that’s how a 1 year old feels when he’s starting to walk.

        Not sure I have any more squats in me but am going to give it another try later this afternoon.

    Well, I guess I’m coming a bit late to this challenge, as today was my first Friday of FLQ.. my first experience with doing proper squats 🙂

    Do the 100 count that Scott has us do, or are these to be added on top?

    If they count, then I’m at 120 so far.

    Next week, I’m thinking we do this again, but have it somehow also benefit charity (in addition to fun prizes).

    Thoughts? I could pay out per squat? 😀

    • Joel
      Reply

      How about…

      We set a goal now for next week, and for each squat we DON’T do, we give $1 to charity?

      Or maybe a group challenge, we all in total do 2,000, or 3k, 5k, and if we don’t… something happens.

      • Arika
        Reply

        I kinda like that idea – set a group goal and pay for everyone we don’t get – the only thing is I know we are all overachievers so we’ll beat any number we set I think.

        So, how about we do what Joel suggested, and WHEN we go over it we pay X amount for the number of squats we go over too! 🙂

    Wow… everyone keeps going bigger and bigger. It looks like we will have to do 500 or so… but now that I said that, maybe 1,000. 🙂

    Here’s an idea…

    For those of you who are up to it… Maybe we could do a 12 hour Squat-a-thon on LiveStream.

    We could embed the video code on the blog and could even have 2-3 FLQ members going each hour if there’s enough members up for it.

    We would just have to provide our channel’s embed code for Nicole to put on the blog.

    So it would require you to have the ability to video record yourself live.

    We could have a donation button next to the video and for every $1 donated that person has to do 1 squat.

    I did 100 squats with 45 pounds in less than 6 minutes… so in 6 minutes a charity would have received $100

    The good thing about this is that outsiders could help us raise money… and it may just draw people into the Computer Butt Challenge.

    I think it would be nice that the person who is doing the squatting for the hour have their affiliate link for FLQ under the video broadcast.

    What do ya think about that? Who would be up for putting themselves on live video…. I sure would even if it’s for 12 hours straight 😉

    I didn’t think my legs could hurt any more than what they were… I was wrong.

    I did another 100 with light weights this time, for a total of 620 squats.

    Is this the final tally? I think I counted them all.

    Joel = 620
    Arika = 501
    Kevin = 435
    My Mom = 350
    Judi = 310
    Susanne = 286
    Me = 260
    My Son = 231
    Erica = 180
    Lisa Marie = 170
    Traci = 100

    Grand total of … 3443 Squats!

    Aw man, I got a fever/sore throat and of course a migraine, and went to an away football game in the pouring/thunder-filled rain. So I was down for the count. I’m going to say, though – I think I’m grateful for the fever/sore throat/migraine – cuz as it is I can barely, and I do mean barely sit down on the toilet!!!!!!! hahaha!

    Two days of shufflin’ with Scott and then Fri filled with squats – man! I’m a goner!

    And I will remind you all, once again – that my house has TWO sets of stairs – and because, of the weird layout of the house – both must be taken multiple times a day! LOL!!

    Good gravy!

    Was kind of embarrassing in the ladies room at the other teams’ field – I’d be moaning and groaning in my stall! I’m sure there were some cheerleaders and whatnot giggling hysterically at me! Ha!
