How to Squat | The Ultimate Glute Exercise
Let Kris J. Simpson show you how to squat using the three best techniques to make the ultimate glute exercise.
Squat exercises are great for a total lower body workout. They effectively work most of the major muscle groups of the butt, hips and thighs. Squats are also a versatile exercise. Squats can be done in almost any location, with or without the use of weights or equipment.
If you work on squats through various stances and foot placements, you can bring up weak points that have been holding you back. By targeting the neglected areas, you will be able to break through the plateaus you hit from time to time.
I am going to demonstrate the almighty squat and more importantly…how to squat properly!!
Let’s start with the setup. Feet shoulder-width apart with toes slightly out, you want to imagine that you’re sitting back into a chair so your knees never go over your toes.
I am going to show you a couple of variations here that work different parts of your thighs. The first one is going to be the closed stance squat. Closed-stance squats tend to put more emphasis on the quads.
We can also take a wider stance when squatting, referred to as a pile squat. The pile squat is a lower-body exercise that can assist you enhance muscle strength or size in your legs.
For the bonus round, we’re going to do something that I love. It’s called the jump squat. What I love about the jump squat is that it also has a cardio component.
There you have it, three simple exercises to achieve better glutes and leaner thighs!
