Squats and lunges can give you strong legs, but for an explosive and powerful lower body that blows past the competition, try training like a speed skater. "The skater hop trains each leg individually, and increases coordination, balance, endurance, strength, and power at the same time," says David Jack, owner of Activ8 in Phoenix Arizona and creator of 30 Days to Ripped. Since you're moving side to side, you'll also zero in on the tough connective tissue called fascia that runs along the sides of your body. The stronger this connective tissue, the more stable your midsection, and the faster your reaction time. Master this plyometric move and you'll squat more weight, jump higher, and discover athletic ability you never had before. Ready to try it? Watch the video below to see how to perform this move with perfect form.
