This is serious, let’s talk about proper form on a sumo squat. One of the most known booty exercise. Sumo squats can be tricky if you’re not activating your glutes on this exercise you’re most likely bringing your weight forward and using your quads. This can lead to over development of the quads and hamstrings neglecting the glutes completely, leading to lower back pain.
Best way to come into a sumo squat;
Start with your legs more than hip width apart toes pointing out
Bring your hips back before sitting into the squat
Keep chest up core tight
Bring all your weight into your heels while coming down
Make sure your knees don’t go over your toes
When fully down into the squat, make sure you can feel your glutes contracting
If you can’t feel it in your glutes bring your weight back again and come a little bit lower
Before coming up feel the lift in your glutes
Once back up give your glutes an extra squeeze.
