Kettlebell Exercises to Kick Butt #6: Goblet Squats

Regular squats are a bit hard on my back, and front squats are no better. Thankfully, doing Goblet Squats helps me to keep my posture nice and straight, reducing the strain on my back. Plus with the wide stance, it takes the pressure off my knees.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="650"] Source:[/caption]

Kettlebell Goblet Squats

Stand with your feet spread a bit more than shoulder width apart. Keep your head up, your back straight, and your shoulders relaxed. Grip the kettlebell in both hands, and hold it up at chest height. Drive your heels into the floor as you lower yourself into the squat, and push your hips back until your  upper legs (thighs) are parallel to the floor. (To increase the difficulty of the exercise, drop into a Deep Squat.) Your thighs will do most of the work to push back up, but bring your hips back to normal position as you stand erect. Reps as desired   With an awesome leg exercise like this, you can get a ripping workout without straining your back!
