    • Jessica Moody

      I was sooo sore the first few days, walking killed me! I am on Day 7 now & it isnt so bad.. I recommend using Bengay or Icyhot, it has seemed to help me!

      • Annaliese Rebecca Day

        Im now day 17 and I cant see any difference I know im doing something right cause my muscles hurt and ache for while.

  • Michelle

    Hi! I was watching your vlogs (which I absolutely love by the way) and it really inspired me to do this so I started today on both challenges! I didn’t really understand what crunching meant (I’m Dutch) but I looked it up on google. But I do have a question, do you put your legs up or keep them down on the floor? :)

    • Pooja Mittal

      you have to keep them down on the floor, .. i have also started crunches and planks challenge today…. hop it works…

    thanks for sharing april….Im starting crunches and planks today…

  • Sarah

    Do the squats have to be done consecutively, or can they be spread throughout the day?

    • anon


    • jen

      Most directions say they can be spread thru the day….

    • disqus_nd1mYuXGOF

      All at the same time. You wouldn’t be excercising the muscles properly otherwise I’d have thought.

    • jackiek

      Ideally they would be done consecutively with no stopping at the top or bottom of the movement. You can take a 10 second rest at the half of the later days’ sets and be fine though

  • preeti

  • Destiny

    Hi, so after you’ve finished the 30 day squat challenge, how many would you recommend to do daily to keep up the tonage?

  • caitlin

    • jackiek

    What do they mean by reset??? I’M confused

    • Kayla B.

      It says rest, not reset.
