Squat progression to lift that booty!

Here is the first in a series of workouts progressions.

This is an advancing squat.  It will strengthen your legs, give your ankles and knees more stability and if the form is done properly you will also begin to strengthen your back and abs.

As you do this concentrate on your breathing: breathe out, through your mouth, as you squat and breathe in, through your nose, as your stand. Keep you abdominal muscles contracted (as if you were resisting a punch to the gut) don’t just suck you tummy in, make it work for you!  Also watch your shoulders, pull your shoulder blades together like you have to hold a $100 bill between them πŸ˜‰

As with all diet and workout plans listen to your body, if something is painful STOP! Always consult your primary care doctor before starting any new workout or diet regime.
