WEIGHTED SISSY SQUAT

Weighted Sissy Squat

Alternate Name: -
START POSITIONEXECUTION
Stand sideways next to a dumbbell rack (preferably) and place one hand on the rack while holding a weight plate on your chest with your other hand. This is your starting position.Squat down by bending your knees and dipping your back down as if you want to lay down. Go as far down as you can. Once down, return back up to the starting position. It's OK if you cheat a bit to help yourself up by pushing off with your other hand (this is why it's called a "sissy" squat).

Finally, repeat the entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.
