looking for a killer superset to switch up your squat routine?
did you know the positioning of your feet while squatting will give you different results?
taking a wider stance than shoulder-width has been shown to provide the same level of quad activation as a traditional "narrow" stance. a wide stance works a greater number of muscles. go wide, and you'll feel it in your glutes, your overall strength, and maybe in the back and knee pain you don't feel.
1. activates your glutes, quads & ankle mobility
2. helps to train your hips in all three planes
3. less pressure on your spine
taking a closer stance, you'll active your normal muscles during a squat, however, it is more dominate on your quads.
this stance can sometimes put a lot of pressure on your knees, so be careful!
looking for that "tree trunk" look? this is the stance for you!
