starrynight898:  that’s awesome that you are seeing results! Are you squatting with weights or  doing air squats?

Love squats! There is such a variety you can do to work different muscles/work them to different degrees. Glad you had success!

That’s great progress! If you’re still looking for glute specific exercises and feel like branching out from squats, I hear a lot of good things about Strong Curves by Bret Contreras.

Squats are one of my favorite things. Yesterday after a few warm up sets, I superset back squats @ 140lbs till I hit 30 total yesterday. I weigh 120lbs for reference. My goal this year is to hit 240lbs for a one rep max.

Edit — also you totally made me think of this because it is pretty much my life:

starrynight898:  you go girl! I started the 30 day squat challenge last summer and gave up about half way through. Maybe I should try again!

Squats totally work!! I was doing them in the few months leading up to the wedding and it definitely made a difference. I used to do them while brushing my teeth, haha. I’ve stopped and you can totally tell πŸ˜›

wonderlily:  You definitely have to share WHEN you hit that 240lb squat! 

Definitely another vote for loading up some weight. I’m a wee bit heavier than wonderlily but there’s little that feels more badass than squatting over 100kg (220lb) in the gym. I’m aiming to get to 145-150kg this year (319-330lb) at under 63kg (139lb). My butt has gone from fat and flat to a show-stopping ass.

starrynight898:  Is it wrong I want to see before and after pictures of your ass! πŸ˜‰

But seriously, awesome. I am getting into weights at the gym, but I think I may do this squat challenge awesome. I have always had an ok bum but I want steel and not dough!

MsBeer:  +1 for pics lol. But I’m in a fitness group that regularly shares progress pics so I don’t think it’s weird!

SpecialSundae:  Yep yep! Hitting 220 at 139 is awesome! My 1RM is about the same in body weight percentage right now. Them CrossFit gainz yo.

wonderlily:  My PB is actually 135kg, 100kg is just the weight at which I start feeling badass again in the gym. I don’t do crossfit though; I’m a powerlifter through and through.
