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