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: CURTSY SQUAT
Curtsy Squat: Stand with your feet hips-width distance apart and hands on hips or clasped at your chest. Step your left foot behind your right leg, as far as you comfortably can while squatting down. Keep your weight in the front leg as you use your heel to return to the starting position, and then repeat on the opposite side, stepping back with your right foot. Continue alternating from side to side.
G-Tip: Be sure to push your glutes back as far as you can, in order to prevent the knee from going over your toe. The bigger the step, the better glute engagement you will get with each curtsy squat.
