We need carbs to survive, people! It’s just a matter of picking the right ones. Don’t fear the carb.

Remember to be careful. This workout is NOT EASY. So take breaks when you need it and only push yourself to a level of slight discomfort but not to the point where you’re going to hurt yourself.

The Sumo Squat
This wide-legged squat focuses on your butt & inner thighs. It’s a great exercise to add into your lower body workout routine for a little extra mobility and strengthening.
The sumo squat is a compound exercise (An exercise that involves two or more joint movements) with a deep range of motion. Engaging the entire lower half of the body, including the hips, glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves. Sumo squats also work your core, shoulders, and back making them an excellent all-rounder!
- Stand with your feet 6-12 inches wider than your shoulders and point your toes outward at around a 45° angle.
- Keeping your weight in your heels, slowly lower your bodyweight down. Make sure that your knees do not go over your toes.
- Lower your hips until your thighs are at least parallel to the ground (or as close as you can get), then return to a standing position.
Did You Know?
Studies show the gluteus maximus is over 25% more engaged during deep squats than when squatting parallel!
This is a good reminder.
