Today’s video is from Travis Tessier of Iron Dragon Dojo. He’s going to show us how to do some bodyweight squats.
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
10-20 reps, for 3 sets
You can also do Tabata for squats (See Kite’s Tabata Video!)
For a harder workout
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.
