Exercise of the Month - Sumo Squat with Kettlebell or Dumbbell

Aug 21, 2018 15:572 months ago

The kettlebell/dumbbell sumo squat develops strength in all of the major muscles in the lower body.

Start by taking an excessively wide stance.

The further apart your feet are, the more you activate your glute muscles. Angle your feet 45 degrees away from your body.

Holding the kettlebell or dumbbell in front of you (arms should not be flexed), with your core engaged and your back kept straight, bend your knees and send your hips backwards, lowering your body and the kettlebell/dumbell far as you can without compromising your posture.

Try to get the weight all the way to the ground without actually touching it. Rise back to your starting stance, squeezing your glutes at the top of the movement. That’s one repetition!
