Kneeling Squat Guide

Main Muscle: Glutes

  1. Set the bar to the proper height in a power rack. Kneel behind the bar; it may be beneficial to put a mat down to pad your knees. Slide under the bar, racking it across the back of your shoulders. Your shoulder blades should be retracted and the bar tight across your back. Unrack the weight.
  2. With your head looking forward, sit back with your butt until you touch your calves.
  3. Reverse the motion, returning the torso to an upright position.

Sep 6, 2013 6:58 PM: I really liked this exercise, although, it hurt my knees a little bit. I used a foam mat, so they weren't hurt too bad. If you are using a good amount of weight, I would only recommend doing like 3-4 sets.

Jun 27, 2012 5:43 AM: Felt more in the lower hammies, even though i was squeezing glutes hard, kills the knees (carpet burn). Definitely need yoga mat for this or knee pads.

p.s. betteroff doing hip barbell bridges/thrust/raises
