Sumo squats work your inner thighs and your gluteus maximus muscles (also known as your “rear end”).
You can perform these at the gym or in your living room, and can hold some weight in front of you for a more advanced routine.
Some tips while doing the Sumo squat:
- Keep your back straight so you don’t put too much pressure on your lower spine.
- Try to get your legs parallel to the ground to get the most out of the exercise.
- Do 3 sets of 10 repetitions, and increase the amount of repetitions as you get stronger.
