Exercise 8 — Wide Stance Barbell Squats
Protocol: 12 reps
Target Muscle(s): Butt, Quads
(1) Load a barbell and spread your feet so that they’re approximately 1 step further apart than shoulder-width. The wide stance helps emphasize the butt and hamstrings.
(2) Puff out your chest, tighten your abs, and slowly descend until your thighs are parallel with the floor. DO NOT arch your back, keep it strong and straight throughout the entire squat.
(3) Hold for .5 seconds at the bottom and powerfully press back to start.
