Surfer Squat

surfer squat

Technique

Start with your feet wider than hip-width apart, straight arm out to the sides at shoulder high. Sit back and do a squat as if you were standing on a surfboard. Jump up in the air, or step feet together if you don’t wanna jump, and rotate 180 degrees, place your feet as in start position but with the other foot in front. Sit back and do another surfer squat.

Tips

Keep abs tight to be able to control the rotation stronger and better.

Alternatives

If you wanna make it tougher, bend your knees when you jump and try to jump as high as possible but with great technique and body control. You can also step back with your front foot and change foot without jumping.

More info

Works mainly glutes and leg muscles.
