The Chinese Squat = With a running clock of 5 mins work for quality, accumulate as much time in the 5 mins in the actual chines squat, see if you can improve on this each time.
Goal: To be able to hold your chest up, open your hips and sit deeper in a squat.
The Wall Squat = 10 wall squats, 3 rounds, for quality this may take approximately 3-5mins.
Goal: Start as near to the wall as possible, without touching the wall, with your arms, head or knees, this is different for everyone, best to place a marker on the floor, like a piece of tape, so you can work on keeping an upright position. When you have achieved this, the challenge is to get as close to the wall a possible.
