This week’s Best Butt Exercise is the Ice Skater Plyo.
If you didn’t already know, ice figure skaters have long been associated with great butts. This can probably be attributed to the amount of low squatting motions that are required in the sport, not to mention multiple changing angles and a lot of leg-work in general.
That’s all well and good for figure skaters, but how can we get in on this awesome-butt deal?
The answer is: with the Ice Skater Plyo.
If you liked Frog Jumps because of their plyometric nature, you’ll also love these. Plyometric exercise offers benefits in training the fast-twitch muscle fibers and can offer a different stimulus to regular weight training.
Not only are Ice Skaters fantastic for your glutes, they are a killer cardio workout and you can get a great workout to your cardiovascular system by performing these at speed once you’ve got the form down pat.
