Squat w/ Shoulder Press & Leg Lift
I love Combination Exercises because they work your whole body with one move. The Squat with Shoulder Press and Leg Lift does just that. This is an advanced challenging move; the faster you go the move cardio benefit you will receive. Be sure to use a continuous fluid movement and absorb the shock of the squat with your glutes. To firm up all over and really increase the intensity of your next workout do 10 to 15 repetitions of this squat in between all your exercises.
Do it Right
- Stand in a neutral position with feet hips distance apart, knees soft, abdominals tight & chest lifted, hold a light weight or medicine ball on chest
- Squat down as far as possible or until thighs are parallel to floor, keeping knees over ankles, quickly & simultaneously straighten legs, lift left leg out to the side as high as possible while keeping torso straight and push medicine ball up & over head
- Squat back down bringing medicine ball back to chest position and repeat motion lifting right leg out to the side as high as possible to complete 1 rep
