Watch Owners Try to Squat While Holding Their Dogs

There is a new workout trend that we are actually excited about. Social media users are now posting videos of themselves squatting while holding their dogs. Why use weights when you can use your pet? The #SquatYourDog challenge has taken over Instagram. Dog parents everywhere are grabbing their pups and getting their lift on.

Don't be fooled by the cute pictures, this is indeed a challenge. Squatting with a Chihuahua seems easy enough, but squatting a 100-pound Great Dane is a different story. Not to mention squatting a dog while it is simultaneously trying to play with you.

Talk about workout motivation. Your dog is now there for you to help you achieve all of your fitness goals. Check out some of our favorite posts below!

What a great way to bond with your pooch! Thankfully Ruby is light. ? Tag me in your post so I can see you #squatyourdog ? ?

Rainy Day Shenanigans ??? - Saw the #squatyourdogchallenge on @facebook & HAD to do it with Kade ?? Safe to say, he was not thrilled, but I'm honestly surprised he didn't jump out of my arms!! You always see people doing workouts with their babies, so why not do an at-home workout using your pet? ? I think this is going to be a new thing...?? I am just glad Kade is 50ish lbs and not a 100lb lab! - I challenge the following people to #squatyourdog: @alexsdeamicis @nikrapanos (Patton, not Ronnie!!) @06hlange @mallory_fink & @thehipsuburban (you have to do a lot of reps for this to count ??) @merbear_reynolds (since your preggo, Steve has to do it for you!) @onthefrontburner @fitasgluck All my #bbggirls let's get @kayla_itsines to do this!!! ? ??{started by @ajgreenefit ?} . . . . #athomeworkout #rainyday #silly #doglover #dingokade #workout #viral #squats #squatchallenge #wellnesswednesday #humpday #happyhumpday #humpdaytreat #viralvideo #instaviral #igdaily #doglover #dogsofinstagram #instadog #dogsquats #fitfam #fitnessvideo #fitspo #fitnessmotivation #fitnessfun #fitnessinspiration #fitnessblogger
