Day 2 Pop Squat: 12 Days of Fitness


Day 2: Pop Squat

On the second day of Fitness

My Y Coach gave to me

Twenty (20) pop squats

and one minute of high knees by the tree

Pop Squats are a plyometric exercise that can be incorporated into any training program. They leverage your body weight and work your core, hamstrings, and quads. You need to make sure you are on a stable surface (with some padding, preferably). You should modify (low impact) or avoid this exercise if you have issues with your knees or hips. To get added benefit from the exercise, really try to JUMP between lunges. You don’t need to go fast. Good form is key in every exercise. Remember, throughout this challenge and any time you exercise, safety and good form are key.
