How To Perform Exercise

The pile squat is a version of the squat exercise that is performed with a dumbbell and strengthens the glute, abdominal and leg muscles.

Steps :

1.) Start off standing with your feet 2-4 inches wider than your shoulders, with your toes pointed out at a 45 degree angle.

2.) Grab onto a dumbbell with both hands in the center of your body making sure that you keep your knees slightly bent and your back straight.

3.) Squat down as if you were going to sit in a chair, bringing your thighs parallel to the floor.

4.) With a controlled motion return to starting position.

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