Goblet Squat



What Muscles do Goblet Squats Work? Similar to other squatting movements, goblet squats mainly work the quads and glutes. Because you are holding the weight at chest height, the core will stabilize the trunk during the movement, while the lats and upper back muscles work to keep the kettlebell or dumbbell in place.


Start position

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart Hold a dumbbell or kettlebell against your chest with both hands by holding the sides of the dumbbell Pull the dumbbell close to your body and squeeze your shoulder blades together All repetitions begin from this position

Downward Movement

Maintain a position with the back neutral, and the chest up and out slightly outward Allow the hips and knees to slowly flex while keeping the torso-to-floor angle relatively constant Continue flexing the hips and knees until the tops of the thighs are parallel to the floor, the trunk begins to round or flex forward, or the heels rise off the floor Keep the torso erect; do not lean forward or Backward

Breathing Guidelines

Breathing Guidelines: Inhale during the downward movement and exhale after the sticking point of the upward movement
