EXCUSES, EXCUSES, EXCUSES...I know. I'm full of them as of late it seems, for my lack of posting. BUT this one is legit. I moved last weekend, and we don't have internet at my new place yet!! SO...I'll do my best. Here is a great exercise to add into your workout.
You know how I love my squats. They are such a great lower body exercise! This is a little addition to the normal squat to keep things interesting.
Stand with your feel shoulder width apart.
Place your hands behind your head as if you were in a crunch position on the ground.
Keeping that chest up and your arms in place squat down as low as you can. (Remember your good form. Hips sit back, knees stay in line with toes.)
Explode up into a jump, getting your feet off the ground as much as possible. (Leaving those hand behind your head the whole time.)
Land down in a squat position and repeat.
Aim to do 3 sets of 15-20 or if you're feeling crazy set a timer for 1-2 minutes. This is a great exercise to add into your interval workouts!!
