The bodyweight squat is one of the most popular lower body bodyweight exercises when it comes to bodyweight training workout programs. Mike Whitfield, a bodyweight expert in Atlanta, GA, revealed a twist to the bodyweight squat called a “Prisoner Squat” to his subscribers at bodyweighttorch.com.
“It’s still amazing that some people haven’t seen the power of using the prisoner squat with their bodyweight workout program. The prisoner squat is when the best lower body bodyweight exercise is performed but while interlacing the fingers behind the head and keeping the shoulder blades squeezed together. This will work anyone’s upper back while still hitting the lower body. It’s what we call a ‘bang for your buck’ exercise because so many muscles are being worked at one time. The prisoner squat is one of the best lower body bodyweight exercises anyone can use with their bodyweight conditioning programs because posture gets improved by working the upper back muscles. So technically, this is one of the best upper body bodyweight exercises as well. The best part is that anyone can do this bodyweight leg exercise at home because it doesn’t require any equipment. It’s bodyweight exercises like these that are so popular with our subscribers. I wanted to release a video on the prisoner squat so anyone can educate themselves on how to perform this lower body exercise effectively. The real trick is to keep the shoulders back even when fatigue sets in. As long as the elbows are kept back, the upper back will get worked at the same time as the lower body. This is a great way to burn more calories from a bodyweight workout program”, said Whitfield.
The prisoner squat is just one of the many bodyweight exercises found inside the Bodyweight Torch program found at http://www.bodyweighttorch.com.
