Better Ways to Do Squats –Jump Squats

 

Squats are the kings of all exercises. They help chisel your core because, metabolically, they are your best friend. And don’t get me started on what they do for your butt.

 

Build on a Classic Squat – Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, chest high, abs drawn in and hands clasped in front of chest or straight out with palms down. Sit nice and deep, bringing hips to just below parallel. Push into heels to rise to standing.

 

Jump Squat: Start by doing a classic squat, arms in front of you, palms facing in. once hips are slightly below parallel, jump up explosively, swinging arms behind you. When you land, immediately lower back down.

 

Make it Harder: Add a knee tuck to the jump to engage your core more.

 

Body Benefit: This power move is all about those glutes. Better butt, here you come.tmgS27ixbU6gHDFQPaz0OTyYfgPzC-hu1F2gnjs5LYjLzpYr5LK6juxNMAwJx0kagXnO=s98
