As my Summer Squat Challenge continues to rock, I will be sharing with you several of my favorite squat variations throughout the challenge or in your daily workouts.
Since working out only at home and without the use of gym equipment, I have found squats to be an absolute must for keeping the legs toned and tight while booty round and lifted. With good form and mind-muscle connection, the results are amazing when you incorporate squats into your daily routine.
Have fun and let’s get our squat on!
THIS WEEK’S SQUAT VARIATION: BOX/BENCH SQUATS
Box/Bench Jump Squats: Stand in front of a large, stable box (be sure the step/box can hold your weight). Lower down into a basic squat and instead of standing up explosively, jump with both feet, landing squarely on the box in a low squat position. Step or jump off and repeat. Start with a fairly low box— no higher than one foot— and work up to progressively higher boxes as your strength and confidence improves. Be very careful to land squarely on both feet, all the way on the box.
