Hey, guys, Kris and Mel here. We’re going to demonstrate today the almighty squat and more importantly.. how to squat properly!!
Let’s start with the setup. Feet shoulder-width apart with toes slightly out, you want to imagine that you’re sitting back into a chair so your knees never go over your toes.
We’re going to show you a couple of variations here that work different parts of your thighs. The first one is going to be the closed stance squat. As you could see, feet together.
Now what we’re going to do is we’re working the outer thighs or the outer sweep. What we can also do is take a wider stance. Now what we’re doing is we’re working the inner thigh. To step it up, you can grab a dumbbell and add some resistance to this exercise.
For the bonus round, we’re going to do something that I love. It’s called the jump squat. What I love about the jump squat is now we’ve got a cardio component along with the almighty squat.
What we’re trying to do here is land softly on our toes and roll out through our heels. This is to make sure that we lessen the impact.
There you have it, how to squat properly with the almighty thigh exercise!
I’m Kris. This is Mel. Inspire to Aspire.
