Move Your Body Challenge

DAY 5 OF 25

Half squats

Congratulations, you made it to day 5! Now, it's time to get low. You can ease your quads and glutes into things with a half squat.

Since there's balance involved, this exercise also works your core. Squats are great when weight training, too. When you feel comfortable, add a barbell to your move.

Duration: 2-6 sets of 10-15 reps. If this is too intense, start off with a number of sets and reps that work best for you.

Instructions:

  1. Bending your legs, push your butt back to a 45-degree angle, making sure not to position yourself in a full sit.
  2. Extend your arms straight in front of you.
  3. Pause for a second, then slowly raise your body back up by pushing through your heels. Make sure not to lock your knees when you return to a standing position.
  4. Repeat.

Tomorrow: Step it up.

Yours in wellness,
