Dumbbell Squat Overview

Squats are one of the most famous and amazing bodyweight compound exercises that work your full-body muscles. Dumbbells add resistance to the already awesome exercise and help speed up muscle growth. Dumbbell squats work legs, core, and arms altogether.

Dumbbell squats are perfect for beginners: they are not extra-tough or technical. They can train and get you ready for tougher and more challenging squat types in time. 

How to Do It

  1. Stand straight with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Dumbbells on the sides of your legs and your palms should be facing your legs.
  3. Engage your core and strengthen yourself, keeping your body straight.
  4. Now start to bend your knees, legs, and ankles into a squatting position.
  5. Bend until your thighs are almost parallel to the ground ( give and take ).
  6. Keep dumbbells close to your body all the while and move them up towards your shoulders.
  7. Slowly stand up straight and straighten your arms too. 

Tips on Dumbbell Squat

  1. Keep your heels planted on the floor.
  2. Do not bend or round your back when squatting; it can damage your back.
  3. Add weight only gradually: start with low weight.
