The beauty of the Goblet Squat is that it’s incredibly easy to perform—even for beginners and young athletes.

This is a great way to improve your movement and to get the squat motion into play before you start using the barbell.

Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Stand with your feet between hip- and shoulder-width apart. Hold a dumbbell or kettlebell vertically with your hands underneath the top of the weight. Hold the weight against your body so it’s touching your sternum.

Step 2: Keeping your core tight, back flat and dumbbell or kettlebell in contact with your body, bend your hips and knees to initiate the Squat and continue until your elbows touch your knees.

Step 3: Drive your heels into the ground to stand up to the starting position.
