Don't Knock It Till You Squat It
Squats are great for strong quads, hamstrings, glutes, and a lower back. Try our basic dumbbell squat, or really amp it up with Jackie's sissy squats by raising your heels.
- Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart. Then rest heels on top of a pair of dumbbell bars or barbell weights so they are raised at a 45-degree angle.
- Squat until your knees are parallel to the floor and then pause for one second. Return to starting position and repeat.
