Do you have what it takes to complete the 100 rep dumbbell squat challenge? Quick cardio sessions come in a variety of forms and are incredible at burning fat, skyrocketing your energy, improving your focus, and helping you become more productive throughout your day. I experiment with a variety of exercises to find the right combination’s for optimal fat burning in 10-minutes or less right here in my home office.
One of my favorite quick cardio workouts is performing 100 rep dumbbell squats. The challenge is to see how quickly you can complete 100 reps with proper form. If you are a beginner you may want to start off without using any dumbbells and simply using your own body weight.
Here’s a video demonstration of how to perform 100 rep squats as a cardio workout:
100 Rep Dumbbell Squats
The idea is to do as many squats as you can followed by a short break, then repeat until you reach 100 reps. Take note of how long it took you to complete the full 100 reps. The next time that you do the 100 rep squats you should try to beat your previous time.
Fat loss success is all about continuous progression. You must find new ways to challenge your body to become more efficient and stronger. Another way to progress with the 100 rep squats would be to increase the weight. You will require more rest during this quick cardio session, but it will be just as taxing on your body.
In the video above I used 45 pound dumbbells and completed the 100 rep squats in 6 minutes right on the dot. My goal is to continue with the same weight and see if I can complete 100 reps in five minutes. Then I will increase the weight and challenge myself once again.
