b. squat press with loose grip

My favourite Wednesday workout gym combination is this

b. squat press with loose grip.

It teaches my butt to switch on and drive through my whole leg and then finish with a press of the bar overhead therefore working every part of my body.

How to:

  • stand with legs shoulder width apart
  • pull in through core and stablise
  • hold (20kg – more) straight bar on shoulders
  • squat down to near butt on the floor 
  • drive up through legs to standing position
  • lift bar from shoulders and to upright position
  • complete 12 reps
  • 3 sets
