Front Squat with Dumbbells

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Glutes and Quads


Step 1: Begin by standing tall with the dumbbells lifted to shoulder height. Have them turned perpendicular to the body and tuck in the elbows. Your feet are shoulder-width apart, prepared for a squat.Front_Squat_Dumbbells

Step 2: Keep the weights at the shoulders as you hinge your hips backward, letting them drop behind you into a squat. The knees stay behind the toes. Try to get at least parallel with you knees or drop it as low as Crystal does here.

Tip: Now that you have weight in the front, you'll want to lean forward. Fight the urge to drop your chest and sit back into your heels.
