Dumbbell Squat



If you have to choose the better exercise between dumbbell and barbell squats the choice depends of your goals. If you want to develop muscle mass and pure strength the barbell squat is the undisputed winner. But if you want to develop your athletic performance, to strengthen your core, to improve your balance or you just train at home the dumbbell squat is your correct choice.


ras a pair of dumbbells and stand upright with your feet wider than your shoulder width. Put the dumbbells upright at the front part of your shoulders and point your elbows forward. Slightly bend your knees, laid back your hips and puff your chest out. This is the starting position.


Inhale, and begin the squat by sitting back with your hips and flexing your knees. Continue the movement until your thighs are parallel to the floor and then return back to starting position as you exhale.
