Squats – Variations For Core, Legs and Butt
How to vary your squats with only a couple of dumbbells.
Simple Basic Squat (with dumbbells)
First make sure you are in correct squat from with your dumbbells in your hands by your sides. While holding them at your sides, do a regular squat. You will find that with the weight it is more difficult than by just doing a squat on its own.
Squats – Dumbbell to Shoulder
The next variation would be to bring the dumbbells up to shoulder height while you do your squat.
Squats – Engaging the Core
To make it even harder you can bring the dumbbells in front of you while you do your squat.
Squats – Total Body Conditioning
Another way you could do it to challenge yourself would be to bring your dumbbells up above your head with your arms straight and in line with your ears.
Try Them All
Trying out all of these types of squats and putting them in your workout routine will be sure to get those thighs burning!
