"Concentrate on your technique with this exercise, focusing on maintaining a strong contraction in your core and glutes," Wells told POPSUGAR. Make sure not to lean forward during this exercise and to maintain a neutral spine, she said.
- Start standing with your feet shoulder-width apart.
- On an inhale, bend your knees until your upper legs (quadriceps) are parallel with the floor. Make sure you are looking straight ahead. Ensure that your back remains between a 45- to 90-degree angle to your hips.
- Push through your heels and extend your legs slightly. Bend your knees to return to the full squat position.
- Exhale as you push through your heels and extend your legs, returning to the starting position.
- This counts as one rep.
- Continue performing double-pulse squats for 30 seconds, then take 30 seconds of rest.
