Kettlebell sumo squat

The kettlebell sumo squat is a lower-body movement emphasizing the muscles of the hips, glutes, and quads. It shares attributes with both the kettlebell deadlift and the goblet squat, but is usually performed with a wider stance and the feet pointed more outward, similar to a sumo deadlift. Its unique stance helps the lifter keep an upright torso, as well as emphasize stretching the hips and adductor muscles.


  1. Simpler and safer to teach than a barbell sumo deadlift because weight is between the feet
  2. Strengthens the muscles of the hamstrings, hips, glutes, and grip
  3. Can be made easier by elevating the weight on a plate or step
  4. Great way to do squats for high reps, and to build flexibility while strength training
