The Goblet Squat – The Foundation Of A Lower Body Strength Program

The Goblet Squat – The Foundation Of A Lower Body Strength Program

Squats are essential for lower body training. The movement engages all of the major muscle groups in your legs, and once you add a load, you’ll be in a great position to build strength, stability and power while getting other muscle groups involved to assist in supporting the weight and keeping your spine safe.

Goblet squats require you to hold the load in front of your body, allowing you to use just about anything that you can grip in your two hands (dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, etc.) as a weight. This makes the movement much more accessible than other squat variations, while still offering a challenge to even the most seasoned trainee. You’ll train your glutes, hamstrings, and quads; meanwhile, the position of the load will force you to engage your core to keep from tipping forward. You’ll also be able to squat through a larger range of motion than other variations of the movement, if your mobility allows.

Prior to jumping into a full gym program, it is important to have a baseline assessment and understanding of what mobility and strength deficiencies may result in an injury in the future. Come and see our Osteopaths by BOOKING ONLINE here for a comprehensive assessment and treatment plan.
