Goblet Squat for Beginners (as seen on self)

Even though you may not realize it, squats are used in your day to day life! You do them when you sit, stand, or even pick up objects from the floor! Celebrity trainer, Don Saladino of Drive495, recommends that those just beginning their fitness journey utilize goblet squats in order to improve their squatting form.

A goblet squat consists of going a squat position while holding either a kettlebell or a dumbbell at your chest level. Adding the extra weight to your squats can actually help you as a beginner because it makes the squat movement easier as well as to help improve your range of mobility. James Brewer, a NYC Spin and TYX instructor, says that goblet squats also help to work on your grip strength! 

Goblet squats are great for most people who want to workout on the go – no matter the skill level! They are perfect for people who are new to the gym as well as those who are frequent gymgoers. However, if you have injuries that can be aggravated by a squatting movement, it is best that you check with a doctor or physician before proceeding with a goblet squat.
