Box Squat (for novices)
There are many ways to improve your squat a favourite of mine is the mobility drill called the squat to stand
Training bodyweight exercises such as these regularly are important to improve the strength and endurance of the legs. as its all done with your bodyweight you only need a bit of space to move in.
As always, if you have any questions about these exercises or any others, then please ping me an email.
