EXERCISES TO PROMOTE FAT LOSS – DEADSTOP SQUAT
Dead stop exercises will help you to break through plateaus, get stronger and are a great challenge to test how strong you really are.
The Box Squat is the easiest way to use the dead-stop method with this movement. Use a wider than normal stance, open your knees and squat down until your butt grazes the top of the box. Hold there for a one-count, making sure to stay engaged; then drive up off the box. Use a knee-high box so that your pelvis is tilted forward and your back is arched. A box that’s too low will put your body in an undesirable bottom position, which could lead to injury.
