Four Weeks to Great Legs


Energy squat

(for quads)

A. Stand with feet wide, knees and toes turned out, and arms out to the sides and paralell to the floor. Lower into a plié squat; knees should be aligned above ankles. Raise your right heel, and pivot to the left on your right toe. Drop into lunge position, bringing arms together in front of your chest and parallel to the floor.

B. Return to forward-facing plié squat, then straighten legs and lift arms overhead. Return to starting position, then repeat on the opposite side; that’s 1 rep. Do 10 reps.
