Take your glutes and hamstrings out of the equation, and make your quads work overtime with this simple leg exercise.
This unilateral leg exercise is great for lower body structural balance and developing a stable base. You’ll build your VMO, stretch your hip flexors, and gain ankle mobility.
*Notice that my knee DOES travel forward over my toe, and my heel stays planted on the ground.
One of the best exercises for overall strength development. Also, when strength training for weight loss, squats will burn huge amounts of calories. You’ll build muscle, improve body composition, affect hormone levels, and more.
