Strength Training Tip For Runners #6-Goblet Squats

Goblet Squats:

In the video, "Iron-woman", Jill is doing some full range goblet squats. Goblet squats are a fantastic squat technique exercise. By holding the weight in front of you, it naturally engages your "core" and allows you to smoothly sit down and back on the squat. It is a fantastic teaching and easy to learn exercise. Jill recently started preparing for an Ironman so the goblet squats are used to develop strength in her lower body while maintaining full range of motion and mobility without putting too much stress on her body. The full range of motion on a squat varies for individuals and since Jill has good ankle and hip mobility she is able to squat all the way down. Next week, I'll show you the progressions to lower your squat and how I got Jill to the full range of motion.
