EMS Fitness Exercise #1 Body Weight Squat

October 3, 2011 § 1 Comment

Think about it how many times in a shift are you lifting something? In order to stay injury free we need to ensure that we are lifting
with our legs, and not our back. To ensure that we can lift what is required of us we need to have strong legs that can lift heavy weight but also not give into fatigue. Here is a simple body weight exercise that will build leg strength and endurance and takes no equipment, you can literally do this exercise ANYWHERE!

Body Weight Squat:

Make sure your feet are shoulder width apart then squat down like you are sitting in a chair. The immediately stand up. Ensure you keep you
back as straight as possible, and remember the deeper you squat (while keeping good form) the more muscles you will engage and the more progress you will see. If you feel they are too easy then add some weight to yourself.  You can use what you have, add books to a
book bag, put on the EMS aide bag, or just hold a heavy book over your head.

Always make sure you are getting regular physicals, and check with your doctor before starting any workout routine or diet. Also make sure
you warm up prior to doing any exercise, and then make sure you stretch/cool down after the exercise.

    Thanks for the guidelines shared in your blog. Another thing I would like to convey is that fat reduction is not about going on a fad diet and trying to get rid of as much weight as you\’re able in a couple of days. The most effective way in losing weight is by having it slowly but surely and obeying some basic tips which can enable you to make the most from a attempt to drop some weight. You may learn and already be following some tips, nevertheless reinforcing know-how never affects.
