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, it is amazing the results when you incorporate squats into your daily routine.
Have fun and let’s get our squat on!
THIS WEEK’S SQUAT VARIATION: BULGARIAN SPLIT SQUATS
Bulgarian Split Squat: Stand up straight with your arms crossed at your chest (or hold dumbbells down at your sides, if weights are desired). Place the top of your left foot on a bench behind you with your right foot out in front. Drop down into a low lunge while keeping your chest up and shoulders back. Be sure to lower straight down rather than leaning forward. Pause at the bottom of the lunge then use your heel to return to the starting position. Repeat the movement before switching to the other side.
G-Tip: Be sure your knee doesn’t go over your toe as you drop down toward the ground. This is a straight up-and-down movement. As you rise to the top, keep a slight bend in your knee so it never fully locks at the top.
This is one of my favorites to really hit the lower glutes and hamstrings!
