Lyuda Bouzinova, ACE-certified personal trainer and cofounder of Mission Lean, said that in order to activate your glutes better, you should add a jump to your regular squats. She also said you should focus on jumping as high as you can to get the most out of this exercise. Plus, she added, this is a cardio move that can help you burn calories!
- Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
- Start by doing a regular squat, then engage your core and jump up explosively.
- When you land, lower your body back into the squat position to complete one rep. Land as quietly as possible, which requires control.
