Partner Squats 02

Simultaneously, both of you should then lower yourself into the squat position, ensuring that you retain hold of your partner’s hands. Once your thighs are parallel with the floor, you can then return to the start position.

Repetitions: 8-15

Sets: 1-2

Another entry in our fun partner series, involving a little twist on the standard squat exercise.

By making it easier, it also allows you go into a deeper squat than you otherwise would.
