I love Cable Squats because they are a great change to the standard squat. The wider your feet the more you will challenge your inner thighs. Make these more challenging and work your calf muscle too by lifting up on your toes as you stand up! Remember to keep your torso upright and perpendicular to the ceiling and exhale on the way up.
Do it Right
- Stand w/ feet wider than shoulder distance apart, knees soft, toes pointed slightly outward & abdominals tight
- Hold the cable w/ both hands at shoulder height, look straight ahead & squat down as far as possible keeping knees over ankles & in line w/ toes
- Exhale & straighten legs to return to starting position
- Continue until all reps are complete
