How To Do The Walking Squat

Proper Form, Tips, + Variations

2020-07-09 | By: Snap Fitness

Add an extra challenge to your daily squats with a few steps! The walking squat is an advanced level squat that targets your quadriceps and glutes.

Instructions: 

  1. Begin with your feet shoulder width apart and work your thighs towards parallel to the floor without compromising your low back, core engagement or straight spine.
  2. Maintain the squat as you walk forward and then backwards.

Tips:

  1. Keep your chest up,  weight on your heels and eyes forward.
  2. Extend your arms in front of you for balance.

Modifications:

If you cannot maintain a parallel squat, try holding the pose at a higher angle. This will decrease the pressure on your legs. As you gain strength you’ll be able to lower the position of your squat. 

Challenges:

For an added challenge, hold some weights while you perform the move.
