RUSSIAN SQUATS | UNIVERSAL REFORMER
"The Reformer is like a good mother preparing you for the world. In the beginning it supports you, then it starts to challenge you, and then finally defy you. It is when Momma Reformer starts to defy me that I begin to grin. At the end of a good workout I love the challenge of balance and control that the Russian Squats present. They draw me together after all of the Splits so that I can walk away strong, living life with plenty of ‘zest and pleasure’…just like Joe wanted." - Jon Scott Owen
