Squat Pulse – Heels Elevated, Band Around Knees

  • HOW: Loop a band around your knees. Put something on the ground that you can elevate your heel slightly above your toes. Bend your knees hinging forward at the hips while spreading the band slightly still keeping your feet stable.  Once you are as low as you comfortably can go, pulse the squat by coming up just a bit, then back down. After the pulse, push back up into the starting position.  
  • FEEL: You should feel your quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes working. The higher plate on the ground, the more your heels will be elevated causing your quads to work more. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep a flat back, don’t round it. Make sure to push out on the band a bit as you squat down.
