Gina Aliotti’s Summer Squat Challenge

Squat Variation of the Week: MONKEY SQUATS

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!


Open your legs with a wide stance and your toes turned out. Bring your arms out to your sides then start to lower, bending your knees while keeping your feet flat on the ground. Your arms will hang down between your legs at the bottom of the squat, then rise back up to the tip of the squat and repeat.

G-Tip: It is completely normal for your back to round slightly at the bottom of the squat. The key is to keep your feet flat on the ground at all times. You will understand why this is called a “Monkey Squat” once you put this variation into action. What really makes this squat more effective is to make the sound of monkey while performing your squats ;)

Be sure to get your kids to join you – they all seem to love this one!
