Bodyweight Squats!

Squats are a great exercise and the good news is that you don’t have to add weight to make them an effective part of your workout.  As a matter of fact, if you’ve been doing squats with weight as a regular part of your routine, it’s a good idea to change things up once in a while.  An effective way of doing that is to incorporate bodyweight squats into your routine.  They may sound easy but you can construct a program around them that’s fun and challenging at the same time.

When doing bodyweight squats it’s important to make sure you’re using the proper form.

Prisoner-Squat

This is called a Prisoner Squat (hands placed behind head). I don’t do my squats this way but it’s a good variation if you want to try it!

  1. My diet is actually continuing quite well, although I’m not totally sure which one of the three people in the post I resemble most.

    1. I’m glad to hear your diet is going well. I’ve been doing a good job of eating too much. That happens to me a times so I’ve got to pay a little more attention and get back on track. Happy weekend!
