This Squat Variation Will Have You Rocking Your Best Summer Body Yet

Is there really anything better than working out and seeing your body transform right before your very eyes? Ok, disregarding eating your favorite slice of pizza and pigging out in front of the TV with your Netflix queue, the effects of working out can have you feeling absolutely amazing about yourself and your life. For the past couple of years, workout focus has been extremely geared toward having a super round and toned behind. Whether it’s because of the Kim Kardashian obsession or the fact that all of us have realized that big booty’s really do rule, this new focus has shaped up some amazing workouts for us all.

Here’s a great variation on the basic squat that will have you feeling the burn in your lower body. This sumo squat move is easy, fun and will have you rocking a fab booty in those summer short shorts. To start the move off, grab a dumbbell with a weight that you feel comfortable using. Hold onto the heavy end of one side of the dumbbell and keep it parallel in front of you. Place your feet about twice as wide as shoulder width and point your toes outward. Push your hips back and lower your body down, making sure to bend your knees. Hold the position for a second and then push yourself back up to start. That entire movement counts as one rep.

In order to really feel the burn, perform the move for at least 2-3 sets of 10-15 reps.
