Here comes Harley Quinn with a nail-biting workout movement! Just kidding, it’s Oxygen Ambassador Lisa Maximus.

100 Back Squats

Knocking out 100 back squats gives Maximus nightmares because the burn is oh, so good! Back squats can improve lower back strength, build a strong core and increase lower body power.

Just make sure you’re doing them properly to avoid just the opposite. Yes, we mean the notorious low-back injuries that you’ll hear many a lifter attribute to squatting. Fortunately, we have a barbell squat master class you can reference to ensure you (and that barbell) are on the right track.
