Exercise of the Month

Squat Thrust

Looking to change up your cardiovascular routine? Squat thrusts get your heart rate up without the use of a machine while challenging the legs and abdominal muscles.

  1. Begin in a push-up position with arms fully extended
  2. Jump with both feet forward, with knees coming up between the elbows
  3. Jump with both feet to starting position without allowing your hips to drop to the ground
  4. Repeat the movement 10 to 12 times while tightening your core muscles

Please remember that safety should be your first priority when working out. If you are a beginner, please ask one of our Fitness Specialists to help ensure proper form.

For more exercise tips, schedule a session with one of our Personal Trainers by contacting Kristina Wrezel at (847) 535-7038 or kwrezel@nm.org.
