Squat to Bench

This is s great overall exercise for the lower body. There are many variations on the squat, this one uses a bench to remind you how far down to squat.


Barbell, Flat Bench




Calves, Glutes, Hamstrings

  • Place a bench behind you.
  • Lifting a barbell off of a weight rack, position it on your shoulders.
  • Place your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart with your knees and toes pointed slightly outward.
  • Drawing your abs in, descend slowly and squat down, bending at the knees and hips.
  • Lower yourself as far as you can control without letting your body shift towards your toes (this will cause you to loose balance). Do not sit on the bench.
  • Pause in the downward position and slowly return upright to the starting position.
