The Warrior or Barbarian Squat is a great full-body exercise. You’re working your lower body, core, grip, and upper body in a single coordinated movement. This workout with a variable weight Gorilla Mace also provides an excellent shoulder and back stretch during each repetition. Give this Gorilla Tough workout a try!
Step 1: Stand with your feet slightly more than shoulder width apart, holding the Gorilla Mace in front of you with both hands. Make sure you keep your core tight and your elbows in. Slowly put the Gorilla Mace behind your back by going over one shoulder without hitting the back of your body with the Mace.
Step 2: Pull the Gorilla Mace back over your shoulder while simultaneously dropping into a squat. The Gorilla Mace should be vertical during the squat portion of the exercise. Keep your core tight and elbows near your sides.
Step 3: As soon as you hit the bottom of the squat, begin rising while putting the Steel Mace back over one shoulder. Do this in a controlled manner in order to avoid hitting your back with the Steel Mace at the top of each rep.
Tips & Safety: To make the workout easier, move your hands farther apart. Avoid trying to pull the Gorilla Mace directly over your head; this is dangerous and should be avoided.
