Dumbbell Squat – Exercise of the Week

Dumbbell Squat – Exercise of the Week

This exercise is exactly the same as the bodyweight squat but with the added resistance of dumbbells

  • Stand with your feet just greater than shoulder-width apart
  • Start the movement at the hip joint
  • With your abs braced and glutes squeezed, start the movement at the hip joint and push your hips backward and “sit back into a chair”.
  • Squat as deep as possible, but keep your low back tensed in a neutral position
  • Don’t let your lower back round
  • Push with your glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps to return to the start position
  • For the dumbbell squat, hold a dumbbell in each hand on the outside of your legs
