Diesel Strength Challenge – 10 Goblet Squats with 50% of Your Bodyweight

Diesel Strength Challenge – 10 Goblet Squats with 50% of Bodyweight

With the third Diesel Strength Challenge we move to the lower body.  The first two Diesel Strength Challenges focused primarily on the upper body.

Diesel Strength Challenge 1 – Max Push-ups in 1 Min

Diesel Strength Challenge 2 – 10 Pull-ups with Hold for Time

What Are Goblet Squats

Goblet squats are squats done with a dumbbell (or a kettlebell) held vertically against your chest.

They have a ton of benefits for those who don’t like squats OR have problems with correct squatting form.

Goblet squats will help to:

– develop core strength (torso rigidity)

– engage the lats

– improve hip mobility

– teach great squat mechanics

Remember, each submission will be voted on by the community. When all of the submissions are posted, cast your vote in the comments section.

Show some personality in the videos and use the best technique possible.

How to Judge


Since all of you will be judging all of the submissions, I wanted to give you some criteria to help you choice your picks for each challenge.


1. Who did the challenge the best overall?

2. Who had the best form for the strength exercise?

3. Who showed the most personality?

4. Who gave it their all? (the winner doesn’t have to be the one who did the longest hold for time, it could be the person you think tried their best)

5. Who followed all of the rules the best?

    Right now I use a V-Squat machine. Seems to be easier on the old knees. I’m going to try the goblet squat.
