Hanging Dumbbell Squat
Grabbing one dumbbell, by the “bell” part, let your arms hang long so the dumbbell is between your legs. Don’t keep your legs too narrow. Set your feet apart a little wider than your hips and slightly turn your feet out. Begin the motion by shoving your bottom backwards and allowing your knees to bend and push out over your feet. Only go as deep as you can keep your spine rigid. Pause at the bottom. Don’t rush this part. Feel your muscles tighten up to start your return journey upwards. Do 8 to 12 of these.
SPECIAL NOTE: For all the In the Gym: Cable and Dumbbell exercises pick a weight that you can do for 8 to 12 reps fairly comfortably and with perfect technique. After a couple of weeks of performing at this weight and with perfection, on then, move up to a slightly heavier weight that feels challenging once you get to that 8th or 12th rep. Once you feel absolutely confident in performing every rep with absolute perfection, only then, go to a heavier weight that is challenging you through out the set.
