Mid Week Madness

‎31 Jam of The Week: Red - Overtake you

Track suggested by a fan of 31 Fitness! I had never heard of this band before, but very reminiscent of Breaking Benjamin or Chevelle. Thanks for the suggestion!



31 Exercise Of The Week - Front Squats

video

Front squats are a nice change up or alternate to back squats. It is another exercise that works just about every muscle in your body, disguised as a lower body exercise. The biggest muscles worked: Back, Quads, Glutes, Abdominals. Try em' with dumbbells, Kettle Bells, or a Barbell today...!

Technique:

Start with your feet shoulder width apart, maybe slightly wider, and turn your feet out just a bit. With the weight, rest it across your shoulders/chest so you do not have to support it with your arms. Tighten your abs, then reach your hips back and bend at the knees. Keep your shoulders tall and chest up (so you could read anything written on the front of your shirt) Keep your heels on the ground and sit down as low as you can. Drive the weight back up as fast and explosively as possible, while staying under control.
