Hereโ€™s how to get better glute activation from squats!๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿค“

Barbell squats are a great overall leg exercise, but they mainly target your quads, not your glutes.. did ya know that?? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
_
One way to target your glutes better is by using a wider stance. ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Often times Iโ€™ll recommend that people start with a slightly wider stance as this will give you better hip mobility. Greater hip mobility will allow for better glue activation, leading to better muscle growth๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘

Important Tip: โœจ With a wider a stance it can be a easier for your knees to cave in at the bottom, so make sure you are pushing them out for each rep
