4 Bodyweight Squat Variations (Video)
Contributor - Parkour & Bodyweight Exercise
In this video, Ben Musholt demonstrates four variations of a bodyweight squat. The air squat is the most common bodyweight squat, but for some variation for you or your clients, try these:
- The prisoner squat - This helps to keep you weight back throughout the squat.
- The single leg crouched squat - This simulates picking something up off the floor using your leg as a counterbalance.
- The BOSU get-up - This is a great variation for additional abdominal work
- The Cocorinha - This is a Capoeira movement. Only put just enough weight through your hand as you need to balance.
Replace the humble air squat with these variations in a few of your workouts. Let us know how you get on!
