"The kettlebell goblet squat is a great exercise for beginners," Nick DellaCamera, CrossFit Stamford owner and CrossFit level 1-certified coach, said. He recommends doing goblet squats at the beginning of a workout to create full-body awareness and to get your heart rate up.
- Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width with toes pointed slightly out. Hold your dumbbell at chest level with both hands. Keeping your back flat, push your hips back, bend your knees, and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor and your elbows touch your knees.
- With your weight focused in your heels, push yourself up to the starting position.
