Coach Shane Demostrating Bannded Squats

Banded Squats
Written by Cat Blatner

Using the Sling-Shot band while performing air squats is a great way to train proper glute recruitment.

Set Up:

Step both legs through the band and place it right above your knees. Walk your feet out to an optimal squatting stance and try to keep your knees out over your toes as you perform air squats.

To create more of a challenge pause at the bottom of your squat for 3-5 seconds. You can even add some light weight if you are getting ready to do heavy front squats, back squats or any of the olympic lifts. Perform 2-3 sets of 10 perfect squats before removing the band. This is a sure-fire way to set yourself up for a successful squatting session!
