In this clip of Warrior Training, this is
a continuation of the other clip, we’re going to go over Walking Squats which correspond
with Walking Lunges because they both work on the base muscles of the legs, the quadriceps,
the gluteus maximus, the hamstrings. The walking squats in Warrior Training, we do sideways.
With your hands at your side, we squat down to your knees at ninety degrees. We don’t
do a ballistic squat. This is a ballistic squat, that puts a lot of pressure in the
connective tissue. We go down nice and slow, looking straight ahead, spine straight. I
step across, I step across, exhaling on the way down, inhaling on the way up. Again, everything
is done slow so as not to injure ourselves. It’s a very good drill after you run, after
you bike and it conditions again, your quadriceps, gluteus maximus and because of the cardio
respiratory, your lung capacity also expands. Whenever you’re doing these drills, they’re
increasing your cardio respiratory which in turn expands the lungs. So again, it’s not
just for legs, but it’s for overall conditioning.
