Squats work every major muscle group in your lower body, which is why they're a staple in nearly every program. To try this twist on the classic move, stand with your feet slightly wider than hip width, toes pointing forward. Slowly lower into a squat until your knees are at a 90-degree angle. Hold for 30 seconds. Keeping your glutes tight, return to standing. Repeat 3 times. The trick? If you look closely, you'll see her eyes are closed!
Training tip: Closing your eyes forces your body to rely on other senses to stay balanced. This is critical for training your body to react quickly—whether it's a player on the opposite basketball team or a rock on the mountain, obstacles often appear "out of nowhere." Try this move on the floor first.
