    Primary Muscles:

    Technical Difficulty:


    Training Benefit:

    Starting Position: Place the thumbs on top of the shoulders and keep your elbows up (shoulder height) during the exercise. The feet should be shoulder width apart. Contract/brace the abdominals as if receiving a punch to the midsection and hold throughout the movement.

    : Sit back and squat until the thighs are parallel with the ground and hold for the desired amount of time. Do not let the knees past the toes at any point in the movement. Return to the starting position by pushing through the heels. Do not extend the knees fully, keep tension on the quadriceps.

    : Knee Precautions. The shoulders and hips should rise and fall at the same tempo. Upon returning to the upright position, push through the heels and utilize the legs and not the lower back. Do not let the knees pass the toes throughout the set. Sit back and allow the knees to move backward. Keep the knees in line with the second toe of each foot. Do not allow the knees to move in and out.
