Dumbbell February: Weighted Squats

Squats work your glutes and your thighs. Holding a dumbbell increases the tension in your thighs and makes your strength workout even better. I am holding a 15lb dumbbell in the picture above. The dumbbell will also help you keep your upper body straight as you lower down. Start in position 1, lower to position 2, and lift back up into 1. Repeat this for 3 sets of 15 reps. As always, your knees should not go beyond your toes, and you should sit back rather than squat forward.

Cheers Eights & Weights!


  1. I am interested in bodybuilding, so I liked getting the detailed information about the top adjustable dumbbells for ladies.

  2. Squats are great for building your legs if your knees can take the weight. It gets difficult to do squats if you're experiencing knee pain from arthritis or other knee related issues. greenskyonline

  3. I learned a lot from your information. And I'm sure that I will apply it to my subordinates, because I work as a coach. And mine was always interested in one question. I hope you can help me. why exercise with a recumbent bike ???
