Prisoner Squats

Prisoner Squats

Category: Warm-up, Accessory

Muscles Targeted: Quads, hamstrings, glutes

The prisoner squat is one of the movements found in the Parisi Warm-Up DVD. If you don't have this, get it. I have found that this DVD will help just about anyone and any athlete.

The prisoner squat is performed with the hands held on the back of your head. Begin the exercise by pushing your butt back and then squatting down. Done as a warm-up, the depth may be pretty high and will generally get deeper as your body gets adjusted.

This is also a great exercise to do for athletes and kids that are not ready to squat with a barbell.
