How To Do Dumbbell Sumo Squat

dumbbell sumo squat

I read a Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and I learned good stuff.

Standing with your legs apart. Your toes are pointing outwards and you hold a dumbbell between your legs :

  • You look straight in front of you. You inhale deeply. You arch a little bit your back and squat down.

  • When your thighs are parallel to the floor, straighten your legs to return to the starting positon.

  • Exhale at the end of the effort.

This exercice mainly works quadriceps and glutes.


The stretched position of your thighs allows you to work your adductors.
