Bodyweight Squat and Goblet Squat Basic Tutorial

Here’s an introductory lesson on everyone’s favorite move, the squat! Well, if it’s not one of your favorite lifts, it probably should be. The squat is a compound movement which trains many major muscle groups, including glutes, quads, and abs. Adding a kettlebell in the goblet position gets the whole body involved. The goblet squat is easy and accessible, yet powerful! Dial in your form before adding weight.

How many squats should you do? Well…it depends. Start with lighter weights and less volume and build up with time and practice. Since goblet squats are not necessarily heavy per se, you can do sets of 10 or more depending on the weight of your bell. Warm up with bodyweight and then try doing 3-5 sets of 10 Goblet Squats as part of your workout, 3-4x per week.
