Exercise of the Week – Squat Hold

Target Muscles: Buttocks (Glutes), Thighs (Quads) & Inner Thighs (Adductors).

Squat Hold 01 - Pro:Kinesis Personal Training, High Wycombe

Begin by standing with your feet wider than shoulder width apart, and slowly lower yourself into a sitting position, keeping your heels on the floor, as shown. Then hold the position for as long as you can.

A great isometric variation on the standard squat exercise,  and one that’s really fun doing with a partner or as a family challenge, with the winner being the one who lasts longest.
