One fitness fad I’ve seen recently is the 30 Day Squat Challenge. If you haven’t heard of this then there is an example of it below.

I also don’t know if this challenge was part of a wider, more complete exercise program that person had in mind, which would give the ‘challenge’ a little more credence. The best I could find was a post of it that advised a person doing it to ‘break it down into set of 25 if they wanted’, but still, even that is not very specific and doesn’t explain why you would want do that.
