Squats are great for toning your booty! They can get a little boring though, so it’s a good idea to try different squat variations. It’s also important to make sure you are performing the move properly, or else you won’t reap the benefits of your hard work!
Step 1: Place your hands straight by your sides. Stand with your legs a little wider than shoulder-width apart. Squat down, bending your knees and pushing your butt back as if you were sitting in a chair. Make sure your knees stay behind your toes.
Step 2: Explode up through the balls of your feet into a vertical leap with your legs and arms fully extended. As you land softly, sink back into the squat position, keeping your knees softly bent. Never land with your legs still extended and do not fully lock your knees out. That is one rep. Do as many power squats as you can within 60 seconds.
Modification: Do not squat down as deep, and rather than jump, simply rise up and stand on your toes as you extend your legs.
