When training most folks, one thing that becomes very clear is the lack of time people have. It’s incredibly important if you want to be effective that you find the most efficient, bang for your buck type lifts for your clients and athletes. One of my favorite ways to increase the demand of the exercise without losing effectiveness is to change the hand or foot position. By doing this, we can add more demand on the core during a lower body exercise or challenge stability more by splitting the feet. There are tons of little ways to modify exercises to fit your body type and specific goals.
This post is centered around an exercise that has grown on me because of it’s reliability and consistency in getting results for client’s wanting to shed some weight. It’s scalable, it can be learned easily, and it’s a great progression for the squat and lunge pattern. So, if you are on a weight loss type of a program focused on getting leaner and building some strength check out the video below to add a new tool to your arsenal.
