    The squat kick is awesome! It's a great mixture of cardiovascular and muscle building work. It can be done slowly if you are a beginner or very quick for someone with more stamina. Great for building those glutes when you squat down wide and low. Remember when you come back up for the kick to keep tension in your leg and don't just flail the leg out. Kick as if you're actually making contact with something.
