Hi, I'm Kari Pearce, and I'm a Personal Trainer at the New York Health and Racquet Club. This video is on how to do a weighted squat and twist. A weighted squat and twist is a great exercise for your thighs, gluts, core as well as your shoulders. Before performing a squat and twist, make sure that you can perform a body weight squat correctly. Once you can perform a body weight squat correctly, grab a medicine ball. Your stance will be your feet shoulder width apart; grab a medicine ball and twist it to your right leg. It will be on the far side. Make sure that your arms are nice and straight, your chest is up. From there you'll squat down. Once you come up, you'll bring the ball diagonally straight up with straight arms. This exercise is great for your gluts, thighs, core as well as your shoulders. Perform 10 reps on each side.
