Exercise Movement Glossary: Sumo Squat

Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo to go with a Sumo Squat, but here’s how you do it:

  1. Stand in an extra wide stance, toes pointed out at a 45 degree angle. Engage your glutes and squeeze your buns together.
  2. Keeping your weight in your heels and your chest up, slowly lower your body into a “sumo squat” position. The bottom of the squat is when your knees are at 90 degrees.
  3. Pressing through your heels and remembering to keep those glutes engaged, raise yourself back up to standing position.

    This squat sounds great! My favorite booty squat is the plie squat. I hold a 50-60lb kettle or dumbell between my legs (let it hang) and squat, sqeezing buns at the top. Oh man is that a bun buster! lol
