Gorilla squat

The gorilla squat is a bodyweight sequence that combines two reverse lunges and a bodyweight squat. It could also be performed with dumbbells, kettlebells, or other weights. It targets most of the muscles of the lower body, including the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. It can be performed for time or reps in the lower-body portion of any workout.


  1. Builds muscular strength and endurance in the hamstrings, glutes, and quads
  2. Works core strength to maintain balance and a neutral spine
  3. Great dynamic warm-up before strength training
  4. Great component of a fat-loss or conditioning circuit workout
