Wide-stance squat

wide-stance squat

Technique

Basic technique is same as in squats, place feet twice hip-width apart and toes pointing slightly outward. Keep abs tight to support your back. Sit back as you do when sitting down on a chair. Lower until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Press your hips back up forcefully from your heels.

Tips

Begin the movement at your hips, sitting back - avoid starting with your knees, just let them tag along.

Alternatives

Reverse the movement half way down in the beginning, aim at 90 degrees in knees.
