Pulse Squat


Stand tall with your feet shoulder-width apart and pointing straight ahead. Raise your arms out in front of you for balance. Start to lower your body back as far as you can by pushing your hips back and keeping your body weight into your heels. Rather than coming back to the starting position, hold that seated squat position at the bottom and pulse a few inches up and down for the entire exercise. DO NOT just bounce, as this will put pressure on the knees. Still focus on contracting and releasing from glutes. Keep your chest up, back flat and look ahead. Avoid rounding your shoulders and back. Do not let your knees collapse to the inside or go over your toes.
