Squat Thrusts

A variation on this basic squat thrust is to push each leg forward in alternate movements, one leg thrusting back as the other pushes forward. As the left leg goes back to the original position, the right leg should be thrusting forward and as the right leg returns, thrust the left leg forward.

These squat thrusts are a great way of exercising the hamstrings, glutes and quads and also give a work out to the triceps. Be careful you don’t tumble over whilst doing these and always make sure to keep your hands firmly on the floor as they hold the whole body correctly and in the right position to do the exercises. Build up to 15 – 20 repetitions of these for each fitness session and in no time at all you’ll have a great set of legs that the opposite sex just won’t be able to resist!

Keep in mind that exercise alone won’t give you all the benefits of a shapely body. Diet is just as important so be careful about what you eat. Cut out the sodas, snacks and junk food and eat plenty of vegetables and fruit and other healthy and nutritional food.
