Better Ways to Do Squats – Goblet 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.
Goblet Squat: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, holding a 10-pound dumbbell in front of chest. Push hips back and sink into heels until thighs are just below parallel. Push back up.
Make it Harder: Increase weight for more resistance, or do a shoulder press (upper body move!) after your rise back to standing
Body Benefit: Adding weight helps you sink lower into hips for better range of motion, it works your abs, too.
