Squats with Additional Inner Thigh Engagement

by Addie Kelzer

Work your whole leg when you do a squat!

Adding a small ball or pillow between you knees is a great way to engage your inner thigh as an added bonus to the squats you may already be doing!

Stand with your feet hip distance apart or closer and place the ball between your knees. Gently squeeze the ball before you initiate the squat and maintain the same amount of pressure throughout.

If you notice during your squats that your knees want to bow out to the side, wider than your feet, adding an object between your knees is a great way to keep the legs parallel throughout the range of motion. You will drop the ball or pillow if you knees start to open out to the side.
