Hey everyone it’s Training tip Tuesday once again and this week we’re going to be focusing on Sumo Squats. not just what they are but the difference between them and your standard squats. Check it out!
So with your standard squat as you can see your toes are pointed in the same direction and your feet remain about shoulder width apart. This will focus primarily on your glutes, hamstrings, and quads, (Buns and thighs)
Whereas with the Sumo Squat your feet are wider than shoulder width apart and your feet pointed away from the body at about a 30 degree angle. In making this small adjustment this not only hits you buns and thigh butt also taps in into the inner and outer thigh as well.
So in conclusion The two main differences are in the stance.
- Feet about shoulder width apart
- Feet pointed forward
- Chest up
- core tight
- Drop your hips
- Weight goes into you heels
- Targets primarily your Glutes and thighs
- Feet Wider than shoulder width apart
- Toes pointed away from the body at about 30 degree angle
