How To Do A Y Squat Exercise Video Demonstration And Guide
The Y Squat is a challenging bodyweight variation of the traditional squat.
Although it primarily targets your quadriceps, glutes, and hamstrings, it also works your back and shoulders, as your arms are raised over your head. To get started:
Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart, with your arms extended overhead, focus on pulling your shoulder blades back and down.
Your body should form a Y.
Now begin the squat by sitting back with your hips and lower your body down as far as you can go without rounding your lower back.
Maintain the natural arch in your back.
Once you hit the bottom of the squat, squeeze your glutes, and push your feet through the ground to get back to the starting position.
