Potato Chip Cats: Can you do 200 squats?!

Can you do 200 squats?!

Cuz I sure as hell can't. So today I took the initial test for the two hundred squat training program, which is a casual program to help you get to 200 consecutive squats, all the while increasing your strength and encouraging overall health and fitness. I have a love hate relationship with my legs: I love my calves and hate my thighs, so I'm adding this fun new challenge to my 2012 fitness goals. 

In my initial test, I can do about 40 squats comfortably. The program discourages pushing yourself into pain territory in the test and risk being on the wrong track, so if I were to brag, I'd say I could probably do more. But hey, 40 is not too bad! Only 160 more...yay. The program includes a logger to keep track of your progress (LOVE keeping track of things online!) and I'm looking forward to it. I'm trying to specifically work on my *ahem* derriere, but are squats not your thing? The program originally began with the hundred pushup training program, or you can try the other programs like situps and pullups. 
Wish me luck! 


Wonder if that's her first squat or her two-hundredth...
