Equipment Needed


How To Perform the Dumbbell Squat

  1. Start by holding a dumbbell in each hand with your arms fully extended at your sides, palms facing inwards, and feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Engage your core and keep your chest up and back straight.
  3. Slowly bend your knees and hips to lower your body into a squat, as if sitting back into an invisible chair. Ensure your knees do not go past your toes.
  4. Lower yourself until your thighs are parallel to the floor or as low as your mobility allows while maintaining proper form.
  5. Push through your heels to return to the starting position, straightening your legs and squeezing your glutes at the top.
  6. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
