The side squat will help you tone your hips, glutes and thighs faster. The side squat will improve your overall lower body strength, especially in the frontal plane of motion.
1. Grab a medicine ball and stand with your feet wider than a normal squat. Point your feet slightly outward. Brace your core (as if taking a punch to the gut).
2. Without moving your feet, keep your chest up, shoulders back and lunge to the right.
3. Drive upward back to the standing position. Repeat the movement to the left side and back up to the standing position. That is 1 repetition.
The side squat is similar to the side lunge except you don’t move your feet.
Add the side squat to your workout routine to better shape and tone your lower body.
