SQUAT + SQUAT JUMP (RE­VERSE PYRA­MID 10-8-6-4-2)

Sunday Territorian - - SUNDAY LIFESTYLE -

WHY If you want to tone your thighs, perk up your butt and burn some body fat, this in­tense ex­er­cise will have you well on your way.

HOW Stand with your feet shoul­der-width apart and your chest held high, then sit your butt back to per­form a reg­u­lar body­weight squat, keep­ing your knees be­hind your toes. The lower you sit, the more you work your butt, so try to go to par­al­lel to the floor. Drive the up­ward move­ment by squeez­ing your butt as you re­turn to stand­ing. Do 10 reg­u­lar squats, then go straight into 10 squat jumps. To do th­ese, sit deep into the squat, then jump your body as high as you can, land­ing back into the squat po­si­tion. Rest for 30 sec­onds, then go into the next set in a re­verse pyra­mid: 8 reps each of squats and squat jumps, 6 reps of each, 4 reps of each, 2 reps of each.
