Overview

The wide stance dumbbell squat strengthens and defines the legs and inner thighs. The dumbbells reduce loading on the spine and therefore make a good alternative to back squats. Dumbbell squats can be performed at home or in the gym. Include this exercise on your lower-body workout day.

Description

  • Slowly descend by bending your hips and knees.
  • Keep your back straight and your chest up, and maintain the weight on your heels.
  • Keeping the knees in line with the angle of the feet, return to the top.

Mistakes

  • Rounding the back
  • Buckling the knees inward
  • Tilting the ankles inward
