Better Ways to Do Squats – Sumo Squats
Squats are the kings of all exercises. They help chisel your core because, metabolically, they are your best friend. And don’t get me started on what they do for your butt.
Build on a Classic Squat – Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, chest high, abs drawn in and hands clasped in front of chest or straight out with palms down. Sit nice and deep, bringing hips to just below parallel. Push into heels to rise to standing.
Sumo Squat: Stand with feet wider than shoulder-width apart, toes turned out slightly. Keep chest up and knees out as you lower down as far as possible. Pause, and then rise back to start.
Make it Harder: Try it on your toes to target your claves. Read, no more cankles.
Body Benefit: It works your adductors (inner thighs) for trimmer, more toned upper legs.
