How to Sit Squat
Exercise Families: Squat
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Stand in front of a bench or platform with your arms at your sides and plant both feet on the floor slightly outside of shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.
Inhale. Looking straight ahead, bend both hips and knees, ensuring that the knees point toward the toes. Continue bending the knees and squat low enough to sit on the bench.
Exhale. Drive both feet through the ground and extend your knees straight to return to the starting position. As your body moves upward, lift your arms to help balance. Repeat the bodyweight sit squats for the specified amount of time.
You should feel this working your glutes, hamstrings, and inner and outer thigh muscles.
