I Did 50 Sumo Squats Every Day For A Week – Here’s What Happened

I regularly add squats to my training regimen, but hadn’t tried the sumo squat until my editor asked (told) me to try it for a week. And let me assure you, if you really want to target your glutes and inner thighs, this is the one for you. I am a convert.

What is a sumo squat?

The sumo squat gets its name from the wide stance taken by a sumo wrestler just before swooping down on an equally gargantuan opponent and trying to push him into the front row of spectators. It works the glutes, quadriceps, hips, hamstrings and especially the inner thighs (adductors). It also hits the calves (although you might not notice it because you’ll be distracted by the fact that your thighs are on fire) and you’ll have to engage your core to maintain the form. In short, it is an excellent exercise for the lower body.
