Bench Squat

Move Targets: Quads, hamstring and gluteus


Step 1: Begin standing with feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart and about 1 foot out from a step stool, chair or bench. 


Step 2:  With your arms extended in front of you, keep the weight in your heels and lower into a deep squat position until your butt touches the bench.


Step 3:  Once you reach the bench (without sitting down) explode back up out of the squat to standing position. Perform this move as many times as you can for 60 seconds.


Modification (Beginner): Decrease range of motion.
