How to do a Bigger, Safer Squat

Now, while there are many ways to squat, let’s talk about traditional back squatting with a barbell.

Most will approach this with feet pointing forward and about shoulder width apart. This can be fine, but the issue with this is that it internally rotates the legs and doesn’t optimise the firing up of the glute muscles.

For complete lower body development, try widening your stance slightly and pointing your toes outwards so that when you squat, your knees track over your toes, recruiting the glutes more effectively. This way you'll perform a safer and likely heavier squat.
