Legs make up roughly half the body, so don’t ignore them. If you’re like me and are not a fan of squats, then I would like to introduce you to goblet squats. This form of squat is great for beginners. Don’t feel a rush to get under the bar and look to load up the plates. Goblet squats use a dumbbell and the focus is on lighter weight and form. Keep your back upright and core engaged and try to get to depth. You’ll find yourself able to get more weight and perfect your form this way. If you feel yourself failing, you can just drop the weight. It’s easier to do this with a goblet squat than when you have a bar on your back. This type of squat is a great stepping stone and once you feel comfortable with them, jump under the bar and try a more conventional squat form.
