This super squat will give you strong arms and legs
Fitness pro and Instagram star Amanda Bisk guides you step by step.
EXERCISE: SQUAT PRESS OVERHEAD
WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? ”This is a nice, strong and explosive exercise. It’s great for cardio, core, legs and arms.”
REPS: Start with 15 reps, using a 3-5 kg weight. If you are more advanced, do 20 reps with 10 kg.
EQUIPMENT: Any weight (medicine ball, weight plate, dumbbell – or whatever you prefer.)
Start in your squat position: feet slightly wider than a hip-width apart and your toes pointing outwards. Sit back like you are sitting in a chair, making sure your weight is on your heels, your knees pointing out to activate your glutes so you don’t have any pressure on your knees.
Hold the weight right in front of your face and keep it close to your body. From there, stand up tall and press the weight all the way up above your head. Try to make sure to lock your core in – pull your bellybutton in towards your spine. Press the weight as high as you can up to the sky.
Come back down, bring the weight in front of your face and come back into your next squat.
