You should do them because…I did. And I’m SO SORE!
I did them for the first time this past Saturday, after having a leg day with my lovely friend Annette. She usually does sumo squats only, and I had only tried regular squats before. So I was intrigued, and thought I’d give it a try on my next leg day.
A sumo squat is where your feet are wider than shoulder width, and pointed out at a 45 degree angle. A regular squat is where your feet are about shoulder width and pointed straight ahead.
You should look something like this (with some clothes on, maybe):
Sumo squats really work your INNER thighs and glutes. I actually felt it more in my glutes than I do with normal squats. My inner thighs are so freakin’ sore right now that it was hard to sit like a lady this weekend. Even my brother said, “Why don’t you be a damn lady?! Stop sitting like a dude!!!”
I did 3 sets of regular squats, and 3 sets of sumo squats. It’s hard to walk now but it feels good to be sore 🙂
Give it a shot next time you do your legs!! 🙂 Happy squatting! lol
