How To Do A Squat With QWellness – Instruction Video
Check out our instruction video below showing you how to do a squat!
As the second video in the series for our QWellness All Ireland Games, our ‘How To Do A Squat’ video gives you easy to follow pointers. The squat is a classic when it comes to exercise. When performed as in the video below the squat can build core stability, strength and mobility. The squat can also increase basic fitness when performed as part of a ‘circuit’, or as part of ‘high intensity interval training’ (see a home workout below the video). To add value to our contract catering services and the internal QWellness Healthy Food Programme we have worked with experts of the fitness industry to create this for you! Thus, helping you get active with simple and sustainable exercise options.
We are running our internal nationwide All Ireland QWellness Games. You can get involved too!! The challenge is:
How many reps of the squat you can achieve in 1 minute?
Can you be our County Champion? Maybe you can be our Province Champion? Who will come out as the overall All Ireland Champion?
Send your results of the 1 minute challenge into [email protected] for the chance of winning some of great prizes! Alternatively, sign the results sheet in your Q Cafe Company staff restaurant, student restaurant or cafe.
We will have further videos on the push up and burpee. One exercise video will be released each #WorkoutWednesday (or each normal Wednesday!) over the coming weeks.
Have fun with the squat by doing circuit style training with the ‘mountain climber’ exercise. See below for how you can easily do it at home.
