Since we know you perfected the squat from last week’s exercise, we’re going to crank it up a notch! In this movement, you’ll combine the lower body-toning benefits of a squat with the shoulder muscle-blasting benefits from a shoulder press! Double the burn in one movement… how’s THAT for efficiency?! Follow along with exercise physiologist and personal trainer Jackie Church as she shows you how to use your TheraBand CLX to complete this exercise.
CLX Squat to Press
Place your feet in the middle loops of the TheraBand CLX. With the end loops in your hands, raise them up to shoulder height, mimicking holding a bar on your shoulders. Squat down to your hamstrings become parallel with the floor, then return to the starting position. At the top of the movement, extend your arms above your head, then return them to the starting position. Repeat in one motion.
