DB Sumo Squat

DB Sumo Squat:  Pretty simple exercise but very awesome for the Glutes…..Challenge yourself on the weight of your dumbbell.  And go below parallel if you can on your squat.

I used two plates (25 lb plates are the thickest) to allow myself to go a little deeper in my squat.  Grab yourself 1 heavy dumbbell.  I am holding a 60 pound DB in the video.  Place your feet on the plates wider than shoulders width apart (the wide stance is why it is called 'Sumo') and toes pointed out.

Squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor or go slightly deeper if you can.  Doing your best to keep your back straight….don't lean forward and keep your chest out and abs tight.  As you stand back up focus on keeping all your weight in your heels!  Push in your heels and try to focus the whole movement when standing up in the glutes and squeeze your glutes and inner thighs at the top.
