What this works: (i.e. primary muscle groups involved)
Glutes, Quads, Core
Why we like it:
Because this exercise is so challenging, you really don’t need much else other than your body to perform it. This makes it great for travel workouts and home workouts. Once you’ve mastered the movement, there are a variety of ways to load it to make it challenging, which adds to the versatility of the exercise.
Who this is good for: (beginner, intermediate, etc)
Beginners can perform this with limited range of motion, in order to master the movement. Intermediate lifters can perform the exercise using body weight through a full ROM, and advanced lifters can load the exercise.
*Optional equipment: A pad to gauge depth, light weights as a counter balance, heavier weights to load the exercise once you are advanced.
