Squat - back kick

squat - back kick

Technique

Start in standing position. Sit back in squat position, hold and place your body weight on one foot. Push back up on one leg and slowly kick back opposite leg using your glutes. Hold 1-3 seconds. Sit back down and repeat on other side to complete one repetition. The kick movement is small but effective.

Tips

Standing position means feet placed hip-width, knees slightly bent, abs tight, shoulders slightly backwards and lowered.

Alternatives

Hold on to a chair or wall to get more support. Push up explosively, but remain the kick slowly and in control, to make the exercise more challenging.

More info

Works mainly glutes and leg muscles.
