Goblet Squats

Goblet Squats

Goblet squats are an excellent exercise to train people how to squat with proper form and technique. Apart from the squat aspect, it’s an excellent core and upper body exercise as well. Make sure you use a weight that ensures proper technique. Traditionally this exercise is done with a kettlebell, but can easily be done with a dumbbell as well.

Hold the kettlebell with both hands as if it was a ‘goblet’  close to your chest but not touching your chest. Get into a proper squat starting position – feet slightly wider than shoulder width, pointed out at 30 degrees – then perform a squat (straight back, solid position, and slightly below parallel). Get back up – this is one repetition.

For an even deeper squat and stretch, tuck your elbows in enough so that they don’t hit your legs on the way down. This allows you to go much deeper!
