Hey, I'm Layla and I'm going to show you how to do the toe squat. In your toe squat you're going to start out with your feet together and we're going to sit down in a chair pose. A chair pose is a yoga pose that's pretty much exactly how it sounds. You're going to be sitting in a chair so you're going to shoot your hips all the way back like you're sitting them down in that chair, and now you're going to come up onto your toes, and we're just going to squat from here. You're going to take it up and come half way down, up and down, up and down. Try to stay on those toes. I know it's tricky but really keep your core nice and tight to keep your balance and stability after you do that squat. So again, up on those toes, take it down and up, down and up. So in a squat you really want to focus on keeping both legs together so you really get into those inner thighs. This exercise is really great for the quads and the inner thighs, really targets those muscles by being up on your toes, but you're also working the gluts and the back of the legs. In my workout routine I like to do ten to 12 reps of these to really get that burn going on my quad and inner thigh area. And that's how you do the toe squat.
