|The Squat. The squat is a natural move. We do it to pick up kids or heavy objects, and in lots of countries around the world people squat to use the toilet, work and to just sit comfortably. In our society we don’t squat nearly as much as we should, so a lot of us have lost important flexibility in our hips.
The squat is personal favourite of our boldr trainers because it is so adaptable. There are countless variations and ways to keep it fun but the fact remains that it uses all of your lower body making it a primo calorie-burning and muscle-building move. We all want a tighter, perkier behind, and no move is better for the bum!
Here’s how to do it right:
1. Stand tall with feet shoulder-width apart.
2. Push your hips back while keeping your chest up.
3. Bend your knees and lower your body as far as you can towards the ground. Reminder to keep that chest up and your knees over your feet.
4. Pause at the bottom then return to standing. Go up to your toes if you want an added calf exercise.
Repeat 20 times. Rest then do your set 2-3 more times, working yourself up to 100/day. Yup, 100. You got this!!
