Who doesn’t love squats!? Ok, some people don’t. Just the same as some people despising burpees, many will tell you that these exercises are essential additions to your workouts.
The common squat is known for working wonders on your backside, but what if we told you that there is an even better variation to this fitness staple? We’re not kidding! The sumo squat not only targets your butt, it also engages the hamstrings, quads, and glutes.
Very similar to a regular squat, only you have to position your feet twice the shoulder width apart that you usually would with your toes turned out slightly. Lock in your abs and lower your body as low as you can, pushing your hips back, and bending your knees. Pause and then lift yourself back up.
Trust us, you’ll be feeling the burn. And for an even more challenging workout, try adding dumbbells holding them arms length in front of your waist.
