Weekly Wednesday Workout: Swimmers Squat

Time to work those legs and butt!


If you have been following this Weekly Wednesday Workout series since it started 2 years ago, you would know that we have done an insane variation of squats here. (If you want all of them just search the site!) We have a new one, and these are not easy. They require a lot of balance and concentration, I would even recommend that you stand near to something stable like a chair or table to keep you steady when rising into the leg lift. What I like about this move is that the burn is immediate, not only are you getting the work from the squat but the extra lift wakes those legs right up!

Have you ever tried a swimmers squat?

That one is great to work on your balance which somehow we lose with age. I love it!

I have never seen these!!?? I have a feeling I will love to hate them…like all squats. I’m taking on a new 20 minute HIIT class directly following my spin workout on Thursdays, so keep these coming! I need all the help I can get to keep my members burning 🙂

Sadly not the most balanced or coordinated person here even without the lower back issues and am a klutz from way back that probably fall and further break my already broken back, but definitely does look like a work out indeed. And still can’t believe you have been sharing these moves for over 2 years now! 🙂

I’ve never done anything like this before but it is great for strength and balance!

Also, great to see you last night! 🙂

Wow, two years!?
I love weekly Wednesday workouts! I can feel the burns of these. Never done them, though.

I haven’t seen this one before! Though it kind of cracks me up how the trainer has to correct the model a couple times…must mean it’s one of those tough but awesome workouts!
