Instructions: How To

Combining a squat with a shoulder press, this compound exercise targets the lower body, core, and shoulders in one efficient movement. The loop band increases resistance during the press, intensifying the workout and maximizing muscle engagement. This variation not only builds strength and power but also improves coordination and balance, making it a versatile exercise for full-body conditioning.

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart with toes pointed slightly outward.
  2. Place the band under the midfoot area and pull the loop up over your head so it rests across the back of your shoulders.
  3. Grip the band and bring your hands to your shoulders, keeping the band behind your shoulders. Brace your core and descend by bending the knees and bringing the hips slightly back, your knees should track slightly outward over the second toes.
  4. Slowly return to the starting position by activating the glutes, extending the knees, and slowly pushing the hips forward until you are in an upright position.
  5. While approaching the upright position, extend your arms and push the band overhead.
  6. Slowly lower your hands back to the starting position and repeat the entire movement.
