Plus Size Fitness: 3 Minute Squat Challenge! #PSPfit

August 27 2014 | CeCe Olisa

Once I realized that I could do squats without putting stress on my knees, I’ve been incorporating different stances into my workouts. I’m also learning that doing squats safely can offer many benefits to my Plus Size Fitness journey. Two main reasons I do squats are:

1.) Injury prevention: The last thing we want is to hurt ourselves in a way that keeps us out of the gym. Squats help strengthen stabilizer muscles, ligaments and connective tissues where a lot of athletic injuries happen.

2.) Increased Mobility: Being plus size can put stress on my joints, so I want to make sure my legs are here to support me well into my elderly years, so that I can be the old lady twerking on my husband at my grandkids wedding. Squats helps me build that foundation.

And of course, we always want our bums looking as nice as possible 😉 Scroll down for my 3 minute squat video + todays Plus Size Gym Clothes outfit deets. The workout starts at the 1:40 mark– perhaps you’ll throw on some workout clothes and join me?

    Hi Ce Ce! I would love to see a video on stretches. I’ve been hearing a lot of different things about when they should be done. Some say before and after your workout and some say about 10 minutes or so into your workout as you shouldn’t stretch cold mussels? I’d also like to see what kind of stretches you do. I’m new to the gym and my gym doesn’t provide much guidance (but the price is right) so I haven’t been doing stretches. Which I know is bad. Hope you can help!

    I would like to thnkx for the efforts you’ve put in writing this web site. I am hoping the same high-grade website post from you in the upcoming as well. In fact your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own site now. Really the blogging is spreading its wings fast. Your write up is a good example of it.

    I’m interested to understand just what blog system you’re utilizing? I am experiencing a few minor safety issues with the latest site about environmental jobs so I would love to find a thing a lot more secure. Have you got any strategies?
