Did you know that squatting is the best exercise for weight loss? They help to build your leg muscles and strengthen your core. As simple as it sounds, the perfect squat is not easy to perform.
So how do you do it correctly without injuring yourself while getting the best result?
Step 1: Keep your feet slightly wider than shoulder width. Straighten your back. Angle your feet slightly outward towards 10 and 2 o’clock, not straight ahead.
Step 2: Bend your knees. Pretend as though you are going to sit back in a chair and keep your heels on the ground. Make sure to keep your back straight in a neutral position throughout the exercise.
Step 3: As you go down, push your hips back. Go as low as you can while still keeping your shins vertical and feet heels on the ground. Then repeat step 1.
Have you ever wished that one day your legs would look like Kendall Jenner’s? Try the Reverse Lunge and your wish will soon come true. How is it done?
Step 1: Stand tall with your hands at your hips or overhead. Take a large and controlled step backward with your left foot.
Step 2: Lower your hips. Your left knee should be bent at a 90-degree angle and pointing toward the floor with your left heel lifted.
Step 3: Return to standing position by pressing your right heel into the floor and bringing your left leg forward to complete one rep.
Step 4: Repeat step 1 with right leg go backward this time.
Now that you’ve got the lower body worked out, let’s put some focus on our core and upper body with some Knee Push Ups.
Step 1: Place your knees on the mat.
Step 2: Lower yourself to the ground just like in a normal push up pose, but have the support of the knees to give you more balance.
Step 3: Repeat step 2 for a minute.
