How to Perform the Goblet Squat

Now that you have mastered the bodyweight squat, it’s time to add some external load in order to build more strength.

  1. Grab a dumbbell or kettlebell and hold it against your chest
  2. Stand with feet shoulder distance apart, toes angled out 10 degrees
  3. Push your hips back as you lean your trunk forwards
  4. Lower down until your hips are in the same plane as your knees (thighs parallel)
  5. Squeeze your glutes and drive yourself back up to the starting position
