How did the 30 day lunge challenge go?

I knew I couldn't commit to this, but I am curious how it went for those that did it. I did try to do atleast 50 per day, and I can see a difference! I think I can keep that up!

I failed too, It wasn't the right timing with my 1/2 marathon training in the middle, don't know what I was thinking when I thought both was a good idea lol.
Realized the goal was obsessive (the old me way of working out) I get better results when I have rest days and do them with weight added. It was mentality discouraging me from adding the weight. So I've been doing like 50 but with 30lb bar.
It did help me realize I needed to up my strength training when I can run 10-12 miles and not be sore the next day but a few days of squats made me really sore that first week :-/

I bumped it up, it's a combo of different variations of squats and lunges totally 10,000 in 30 days.

I did about 2 weeks of it. It was almost impossible to do along with running everyday & lifting. I think you would have to strictly do just squats & lunges for 30 days to accomplish the goal. That's just my opinion though. I was so worn out after trying to get all my workouts in that I just stopped the challenge & kept up my normal routine.

I was thinking of trying this.. But it doesn't seem realistic or successful from the comments. Hmmm I might still try though
