Learning Goblet Squat- Learn How To Do Goblet Squat

Here we have given the effective way to do the vital squat movement pattern and also how to upgrade from it.

Doing the goblet squat:

Start holding a kettlebell or dumb-bell against the center of the chest. Stand in such a position that you feet are parallel to your shoulders, with your toes facing slightly out. Now slowly start going down in sitting position with your hips going back towards the ground, remember while doing it keep all your weight on the heels. Notice that your hip will move first and then your knees will start bending.

Keeping your chest up, try to chock the elbows between knees when you are at the last position when you go down and when the posterior is on the level of your thighs. If you are not able to reach to your knees try focusing pushing it somewhat apart. Begin with the second segment of the exercise by taking your hips again back to your start position. Remember do all this slowly at the initial stage and then do it in the normal speed. Doing it slowly will get you the correct position, posture and the way to do it.
