Squats are the perfect staple of a workout! It’s a compound, full body exercise that trains primarily the muscles of the thighs, hips, and booty. Adding StrongBoard Balance Board to the mix will also work balance, proprioception and help increase core strength. Check out Andy Krkeyan!
- Stand on platform with your spine erect, shoulders back, feet shoulder width apart.
- With your feet flat and your body weight mostly on your heels, lower your butt down to a seated position and then back to a standing position, keeping your chest up and abs engaged.
- When coming up, push from the heels, squeeze your butt and exhale.
- Repeat for desired amount of repetitions.
Tips: Keep your chest up, and your abdominals engaged, to keep your spine properly aligned. When coming into a full squat, your knees should not extend beyond your toes.
