The barbell wide stance squat exercise is a version of the squat that uses a wider stance to isolate the inner thigh muscles

Steps :

1.) Start off by lifting a barbell off of a weight rack and position it on your shoulders.

2.) Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width apart (about 30 inches apart) with your toes pointing out.

3.) Drawing your abs in descend slowly by bending at the knees and hips in a squatting motion.

4.) Lower yourself as far as you can control without letting your body shift towards your toes.

5.) Pause in the downward position and slowly return upright to the starting position.

6.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) By using a pad on the bar or towel on your shoulders can help improve your grip and reduce the discomfort of the bar.
