Exercise of The Week: Sumo Squat

sumo squat

Last week we did the basic squat and now we are going to kick it up a notch and do the sumo squat. This squat is great for your inner thighs. So how do you do it?

Unlike the basic squat you will start this squat with your feet wide apart and your toes pointing outward. You should hold your hand in front of your chest or on your hips, whichever is more comfortable for you. You should look like A. Now you are going to bend your knees  outward and lower your hips deeply so that your thighs are parallel with the floor. You should now look like B. Just like with the basic squat you are going to squeeze your glutes as you go back up to start position. By doing that you will be getting the most out of your workout. That is it! Just add 1-2 sets of 10 to your workout.
