Exercise: Drop Squats

Turn your squat into a mobility exercise with this one little extra movement.

This exercise is categorized as a strengthening exercise and a mobility exercise. 

Here's what muscles are involved in this movement:

  • Gluteus (Buttocks)
  • Adductors (Inner Thigh Muscles)
  • Quadriceps (Front of Thigh Muscles)
  • Hamstrings (Back of Thigh Muscles)
  • Gastrocnemius (Calf Muscles)
  • Obliques (Side of Core Muscles)

This exercise doesn't require any equipment - all you need is your body!

The goal of this movement is to both simultaneously strengthen and mobilize the hips in a single exercise.

We can do this by just adding a little drop with the knee at the low point of the squat.

Try adding this little knee drop to upgrade your squat a little more - it'll work out portions of your core and lower legs too! Namely, your adductors, your obliques and more!

By adding just this one little motion to a regular squat, we can turn this exercise from a purely strengthening exercise into a mix of both strengthening and mobility.

Try this out and see how it feels!
