If your are like me then you probably will get bored of doing the same damn exercise movements all the time. This is why I always have to find new ways to spice things up and add a new touch to any exercise to make it more challenging and a little different. Today I am sharing with you some squats variations that I have tried that totally changed things up.
Ways To Make Spice Up Your Squats
ADD A MOVEMENT
One of the best ways to add a little spice to your squats is by adding an extra movement to the exercise. One example can be Squat + Heel Raise, or a squat with a back lunge, etc. This will not only make the exercise slightly different but it will help improve resistance, gain more lean muscle and burn fat.
How To: Squat + Hell Raises
Begin with your feet shoulder-width apart, toes pointing outward. Squat down nice and low. Lift your heels up and down. Now, push through the heels to come back up to start. Tighten your glutes again at the top.
The second way I like to make a squat movement challenging is by adding equipment’s. There are few tools you can use that are very affordable and 100% home workout approved. I have make it my mission to little by little purchase any workout equipment that I can purchase at that moment, especially if it is on sale so I can always have a nice variation of tools to work with.
Resistance bands is one of my favorite tools for workouts. They are affordable and can make your workouts more challenging and help you create more lean muscle. You can use resistance bans around your legs, right up on your knees, so it can make your squat movement more challenging to do when going down, this will create mouth watering glutes girl.

Just like the resistance bands, the stability ball very affordable and perfect for any other leg workout at home. The stability ball will help you to master balance, and again, make your squat workout more challenging and a little different.
How to: Wall Squets
Place the ball between the wall and your lower back, walking your feet out slightly. Lower your body toward the floor in a squat position as you continuously push back into the ball. … Straighten your legs, keeping your weight over your heels to return to standing position.

Adding weights during your squats can make the workout a little more challenging since the weight is going to make you concentrate on your balance and posture during the exercise and make it a different experience. You can find very affordable weights on retail stores or online, start with 5 pound weights and then keep going up after weeks pass by.
