Slim Down Fast With Pop Squats!

This is a great gym & at home exercise that is very efficient & effective because it combines the benefits of of a high heart rate with overall leg toning. Pop squats are a great way to burn fat and tone up at the same time so you can slim down fast.

Pop squats take your heart rate up to 65-85% of your heart rate max, right to the fat burning zone! Getting your heart rate in this range for a short period of time is going to help you burn fat, increase your cardiovascular endurance, & build a healthy heart.

Pop squats also are a total leg exercise, they tone up your legs from your glutes all the way down to your toes. If you need to tone your calves, quads, hamstrings, & glutes then this is the exercise for you. The lower the box that you use the more you are going to tone your legs, hips, & increase your heart rate. Since this is a plyometric movement, that relys on the power of your hips, you are definitely going to see your hips & glutes shaping up.

Benefits of Pop Squats
1. Strengthens heart & cardiovascular endurance
2. Tones legs: quads, hamstrings, calves, glutes, some inner & outer thigh
3. Indirectly works core
