Before starting this challenge make sure you know how to do a PROPER SQUAT (Bum back like you're sitting on a chair. Make sure your chest is tight and your head is up! Knees must be in-line with toes.)
Try these 3 steps to a correct squat:
1. Stand facing wall 1/2inch away.
2. Lower, bum out, knees in line with toe, make sure you're knees are NOT touching the wall
3. Coming up, tighten your abs, butt, and thighs.
...and repeat!
Good luck.

Update: You guys I FAILED my first workout challenge. I started two days ago, did my squats, and literally cannot even squat to sit on the toilet (TMI?). It works. So my NEW challenge to you is: if you skip a day you MUST start from day one. Good luck and happy squatting.
