Lockdown - Video 2 - Bodyweight Squats



Today’s video is from Travis Tessier of Iron Dragon Dojo. He’s going to show us how to do some bodyweight squats.

Body Area

  • Core

  • Legs

Procedure

  • Starting Position - Feet shoulder width apart, Toes pointing generally forward, but whatever is comfortable


  • Hip hinge - butt goes back, bend at the knees, chest stays up


  • Arms - out in front of you for counter balance


  • At the bottom of the squat, shoulders remain in line with middle of the foot




  • Propel yourself back to the starting position

Sets

10-20 reps, for 3 sets

You can also do Tabata for squats (See Kite’s Tabata Video!)

Modifications

For a harder workout

Jump Squats

At the top of your squat, jump upward

As you land, catch yourself softly with an athletic foot



For an easier workout

Get in a good starting position in front of a chair

Gently sit down

As you stand up, you don’t propel yourself forward, you do the last half of the squat.
