Wondering if you should add to your home gym with a new fitness machine? I tripped over the DBMethod machine recently and was super excited to see someone else focusing on glutes!
They promise an amazing strong perky booty, supposedly endorsed by the Kardashians. We know this doesn’t necessarily mean anything, so I delved further into the website to see what their trick was.
They have a YouTube channel where they posted their beginning and advanced workouts. The beginning workout was 5 minutes long, and the advanced workout was 10 minutes long.
Guess what they did for the entire time, nonstop?
Nonstop squats. 5 or 10 minutes in duration.
The machine forces the user to primarily sit, hang onto handles, and lift their toes up. They also cue you to lift your toes in your shoes. These are all great things! These generally are things I tell my clients to do, too.
However, why do you need to have a machine to do nonstop squats for 5 or 10 minutes?
I decided to challenge my clients this week to 5 minutes straight of squats. The video below is of my client Kristen, who encountered a few issues in those 5 minutes.
Tight knees and quads. Tight low back. What if that happened to you? What would you do?
Watch the video below to hear my coaching around these issues, and we are going to check back in with Kristen next week to see what strategies worked and what didn’t.
Would I recommend you put this on your list?
You can do it on your own!
