Squats

by Keli Roberts

Description

This lower body warmup really gets the hips, the groin, and the legs nice and warm and prepared for any kind of lower body workout. Start with some squats. Squat down and come up and sit back into your heel just like a regular squat. Then reach up overhead and increase the intensity of the movement, bringing the whole body into it. Now add a calf raise, so as you come up, you'll lift your heels and reach through the low body, come back down again, and reach up one more time. Now some side to side squats. Start to work on the inner and outer thigh muscles, getting them nice and warm. So you're squatting down, both knees are bending, and sitting back. And now turn that into a lunge, so keep the lag leg straight and stretch out your groin muscles.
