Sumo Squat (aka Plie Squat)

Sumo Squat (aka Plie Squat)

Preparation
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart. Your toes should be pointing slightly out (approx. 45 degree angles). Grasp a single dumbbell with both hands, letting it hang naturally between your legs. Keep your arms stationary during the entire movement.

Execution
Slowly bend the knees and lower your legs until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Make sure to inhale as this is the eccentric part of the exercise. Press mainly with the heel of the foot to bring the body back to the starting position while exhaling. Repeat for desired amount of repetitions (reps).

Comments
To emphasize the glutes>> Squeeze your glutes and push your pelvis forward at the top of the motion.

Keep your back straight during the entire movement.
