Instructions: How To

A squat exercise performed with dumbbells, in a wide-legged stance to target the legs and glutes.

  1. Stand in an upright posture with your feet in a wide stance angled out slightly while holding a dumbbell vertically below the front of your hips.
  2. Keep your weight evenly distributed through your feet throughout the exercise.
  3. Begin to descend by reaching your hips slightly back.
  4. Your knees should track outward over your second toe and slightly forward as you descend while keeping your core braced to keep your torso upright.
  5. You should continue to descend to a deep enough depth that allows your spine to remain neutral before extending your hips and knees back to the starting position.
