Today, I have another bodyweight corrective exercise.
This one is for your backside.
Give this exercise a go and let me know how you feel about it!

Building A Better Backside Exercise Index
This is a great variation to get a lot more glute activation. We are going to hold the bar at Zercher position which is just right into that crease of your elbow.
The heavier the weight gets, the harder it is on the actual skin and in that crease. What you can do is you can wrap it with a towel or you can have that squat pad for your back and you can stick it in here.
But Will is a tough guy so he can handle this. I will get Will to face the other side as he performs the Zercher Squat.
Same as with the normal squats, he keeps it nice and tall. As he comes down, he has to bring those hands upfront a little bit so he doesn’t end up hitting his knees. Now, all that weight is really trying to pull him forward so it makes it quiet difficult exercise. You got to find the weight that you use to be a lot less than a normal squat.
Again, make sure you stay nice and tall. You have to ensure that you are in a good position as you come down. This is the Zercher Squat.
