Side Squats

Thin Thighs and Great Glutes

Love this leg exercise because when you step to the side you are also targeting your abductor or outer thigh muscles!  If you don’t have a barbell simply hold a dumbbell or other weight at chest height.

Do it Right

  • Stand w/ feet hips distance apart, knees soft, toes pointed slightly out & abdominals tight
  • Position barbell across shoulders, look straight ahead, take a wide step to your left & squat down as far as possible keeping knees over ankles
  • Exhale, straighten legs and step left foot back to starting position
  • Switch and step to the right for the same numbers of reps
