Wine Down Wednesday #6: Squats

Were you able to guess what song I set this week’s sequence to?

Since I had a fitness instructor audition this week I decided to dedicate this week’s #WineDownWednesday to my squat sequence. So get ready to lift that booty and get tone the quads.

Video can be found on YouTube and on my IGTV channel. This week’s sequence will flow best set up on a yoga mat but you do not need one! I am cueing a few upper body moves with weights so feel free to add those into the set but also you can do this sequence just focusing on lower body.

This week’s tips:

  • Weight is in your heels.
  • Knees stay behind your toes.
  • Engage your core so you don’t dump into your stomach.
  • Chest stays lifted, open and proud.

Sequence:

  • Start with full extension squats (30x) Can add in bicep or hammer curls here for added upper body moves.
  • Stay low and pulse (30x)
  • Slow pulse stepping to the back of your mat. End in pulsing at the back of the mat (30x)
  • Full extension squat (30x)
  • Frontal kicks (30x)
  • Stay low and pulse (30x)
    • Lift right heel high (20x)
    • Lift left heel high (20x)
    • Back to right heel high (10x)
    • Back to left heel high (10x)
    • Alternate between the two (40x)
  • Step back up to the top of your mat in a low pulse walk
  • Two step Full extension squat (30x)
  • Toe tap to the right in a low pulse (25x)
