Fitness Expert and Author, Tom Holland shares his wisdom on the importance of incorporating squats and lunges to your fitness regime, and how the MostFit SYN Rings add a new dimension to these 2 already powerful lower-body exercises.
When it comes to lower-body exercises, two movements reign supreme: The squat and the lunge. It matters not whether your goal is to strengthen or sculpt your legs; if your program does not involve variations of both of these movements then it is severely flawed.
The squat and the lunge possess all of the characteristics of a great exercise. The can be done anytime, anywhere, they are a functional movement, they are indicated for the novice all the way up to professional athlete, there are endless possibilities of variation and they can be performed with bodyweight alone or with added resistance and equipment.
And, yes, they are extremely effective at producing the desired results.
The squat and the lunge have been around forever and will continue to be a staple of every well-rounded program long into the future. Like the push-up and the plank, they are extremely powerful in their simplest form and, by adding subtle variation to them, they can enhance even further the basic muscle activation involved.
Numerous machines and gadgets have been invented over the years that have attempted to improve upon these benchmark exercises. A select few have worked and stood the test of time; the vast majority have not. The ones that have provided meaningful variation without losing the essence of the exercise have generally been the more basic, less gimmicky and less complicated pieces of equipment. Ones that don’t change the movement, but rather enhance it.
The MostFit SYN Rings fit all the aforementioned criteria and more. They are a simple yet ridiculously powerful tool that adds a whole new dimension to the standard squat and lunge. They provide a uniquely unstable element to these basic movements, requiring a whole different level of lower-body and core muscle activation and recruitment. The MostFit SYN Rings do what is next-to-impossible in fitness in this day and age:
They make two great exercises even greater.
