Hindu Squats

Strength Training Without Weights

This type of squat is a little more uncommon. The starting position will be the same as the regular squats with your hands at your side. As you begin to squat, raise your heels off the ground and continue squatting past the 90 degree angle, until your glutes are touching your calves. Instead of slowly rising, you’ll explode up while swinging your arms forward. Your breathing plays an important role here. Make sure to breath out on the way down and in on the way up. This will help keep you balanced and tight and will get your upper body into the workout. Hindu squats are meant to be done as quickly as possible without losing good form. You might start with doing 25 reps with perfect form and then working your way up to 100.
