A Bodyweight Corrective Exercise for Your Backside

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!

This is a great variation to get a lot more glute activation. We are going to hold the bar in the 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. To minimize discomfort, you can wrap it with a towel or you can use a squat pad for your back.. 

I had Will face the other side as he performed the Zercher Squat.

Similar to regular squats, stay nice and tall. As you come down, bring your hands upfront slightly so you don’t end up hitting your knees. All of the weight will try to pull you forward, making this a difficult exercise. You’ll typically use a lot less weight than you would in a normal squat.

This is the Zercher Squat.
