Position of the Week: The Goblet Squat

I know what you’re thinking: two girls; one cup, right? Not this time. But if you’ve accidentally stumbled onto this page in pursuit of such affairs, may we suggest you give your triceps a rest and stay a while, work out some of those other all important muscles.

The Goblet Squat
This is a great compound exercise, targeting your thighs but involving your entire body to stabilise the movement.

1. Stand with feet in a wide stance, toes pointing out, holding a kettlebell or dumbbell buy viagra houston close to your chest.
2. Squat down until the backs of your thighs are touching your calves (or as low you can). Keep your chest and head up and back straight, not letting your knees come forward of your toes.

4. Complete 3 sets of 8-12 reps, using a challenging weight.
