Exercise of the Week: Sumo squat jump
Love the challenge with sumo squat jumps. A variation to the basic body weight squat that will amp up the intensity for a metabolic kick at the same time as strengthening and toning the legs.
This do-anywhere-anytime exercise will push any basic workout to the max. Add this exercise to your regular leg workouts by simply supplanting your basic squats with them. Execute for a timed interval or a series of reps.
• Feet are wider than hip width apart with toes slightly turned out.
• Keep chest up (don’t let lower back round) on the down phase.
• Land on the forefoot then roll back onto the heel of foot to prepare for next jump.
• Use arms to create force production; bringing them back before take-off and then up into the air on jump.
No question about it this exercise will leave your legs wobbly at the end but the rewards of a toned tush and legs will be worth it.
I like it because my abs are engaged, of course. My glutes, my hamstrings, and my quads. The deeper I go, the more I feel it in my hamstrings and my glutes. That means I'm getting a great workout in my buns. Okay? Pressing up. Ladies, this is a great workout for you.
Have a fantastic day
