Hi, I'm Juliet Kaska and this is how to do squats with alternating kicks. The squat is a wonderful exercise to tone your glutes, your hamstrings and all of your leg. Now let's add in a front kick, a side kick and a back kick in order to challenge us and give us more variety. By adding in the kicks we activate our core which challenges our balance and hence uses our abs as well as our legs. So our squat with alternating leg kicks stand with your feet hip width apart, bring your hands onto your hips and squat just like a normal squat, sitting your hips back behind you, lower down until your thighs are almost parallel to the ground. As you stand up, kick the leg forward and then squat right down. Alternate to a side kick and down and then alternate to a back kick and down, right back to the front and side and back. So we have our frontal, our lateral and our posterior kick, alternating between each one and as we transition we're having to work very hard for our obliques to stabilize ourself.
