Squat and Reach

Adding an overhead reach to a squat will tone the upper back and build strong arms.

  • Begin with your feet slightly wider than hip width apart and toes pointed slightly outward.
  • Keeping your weight in your heels, sit back into your deep squat. Make sure your knees do not go beyond your toes.
  • As you sit back in your squat, raise both of your arms overhead. Once you're in a deep squat, hold this position for a moment, then return to standing while lowering your arms to your sides. This completes one rep.
