Sissy Squats Using a Mobility Band

Today's home gym hack is going to be the Sissy Squat to isolate those quads for the next leg day from home.

Setup: First, lift up the rack upright to loop a mobility band around it. Then, step into the mobility band and place it right behind the knee or just slightly lower. Take a few steps back to get some added tension to support your body. You want the mobility band to be pulling on your legs to hold your body upright when you squat, but not too much where it pulls you forward. 

Once you're setup, you'll be able to perform the sissy squat by putting your feet close together with your toes pointed slightly outward. Squat down as low as you can get and explode out of the squat.

Friends don't let friends skip leg day! Add this to your next leg day and show a friend who could add this to their next workout.
