Kettlebell Goblet Squat

Goblet Squat

The Goblet Squat can be done as a body weight exercise to burn fat & is a foundation exercise to reduce back & knee injuries. The Goblet squat works all the major muscle groups in the lower body & build your core, grip & upper body strength. With the weight held close to you in front challenges your body to maintain balance without throwing your weight forward.

Because we need to squat for daily activities doing the Goblet Squat makes them easier & is a natural position with the toes & knees being in alignment, setting back using your “hip hinge”, deep breathes to power your self to a standing position & breathing in during the lowering phase.

The Goblet Squat uses more glute activation and protects the spine, increases hip & ankle mobility which is especially important if your do a lot of setting. To help loosen up tight hips at the bottom of the move take your arms holding the kettlebell in the center & push outwards on your legs. This variation is called “the pry” for a reason. An extra bonus to regular exercise is a stronger, healthier body & is natures anti-depressant.
