Exercise of The Week: Narrow Squat

narrow squat

This week we are taking it a little easy with the squats because next week is when we learn a much harder version. We are going to do the simple (and yet difficult) narrow squat. So how do we do it?

You are going to start off by standing with your legs closed and your feet touching. Make sure that your toes are pointed forward wand that your hand are in a comfortable position. You can hold them in front of your chest. You should look like A. Now you are going to bend your knees and lower your hips just like you did with the regular squat. You will bull your bottom back and keep your thighs parallel with the floor. Make sure that you keep your weight back in your heels. You should look like B.  Now remember that as you straighten back up you need to squeeze your glutes. That is it! That is one rep. Add 1-2 sets of 10-15 reps to your regular workout.

~Happy Squats~
