Want sexy glutes, hamstrings & quads?
Try a Jefferson squat. 🏋🏻♀️
It’s an old movement—you don’t see many people do it anymore, but I think it’s excellent because it works your lower body in a unique way.
Why Do Them? 🤔
The Jefferson squat is a very interesting and intriguing exercise that offers beginners (and all level lifters/athletes) many highly beneficial outcomes, such as;
🔹Increased Quad and Glute Muscular Development
🔹Enhanced Asymmetrical Strength
🔹Core Stabilization and Anti-Rotational Strength 🔹Decreased Spinal Loading
How to Do Them:
To do it, take a wide stance and hold the bar between your legs with one hand in front of your body and one hand behind it. Keep your glutes tensed while you squat down. Use a lighter weight so you can get down deep enough. The key is to force your knees out—when you do that, it activates your glutes so you keep them under continuous contraction throughout the set. The better I became at doing Jeffersons, the more proficient I got at squatting. I learned how to activate my qlutes, hams, and quads better.
