What the heck is a sumo squat?

Ladies, this one is for you!

Imagine you’re a Sumo wrestler (without the added weight or diaper)… Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width apart and your toes turned out (thanks Jamie Eason for the perfect form/pic).

Slowly squat down tracking your knees over your toes until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Then reverse the move while squeezing your glutes on the way up like your trying to crack a walnut 🙂

This type of squat really hits the inner thighs and upper glutes. You will know your doing it right when you feel it there and not in your knees. You may need to limber up a little before you can really hit it good but when you do, you will know it!

Not for beginners…
