Since you had an awesome rest day yesterday, you should be full of energy for your 5x5 squats today. Take your time working up to your working sets weight. Your goal is to aim for 75-80% of your 1RM. If you get up to 80% and you think you can add 5lbs…do it! That means you are getting stronger and we will be testing ourselves at the end of the trainer, so push yourself!! We also added a new exercise to this day, Dumbbell Sumo Squats, because it is very important to utilize different squat/feet variations to target different areas of your legs and glutes. The sumo squat is preformed with a wide stance and feet angle out. Its an excellent squat that will work the glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, hip flexors and calves, but places more emphasis on the inner thigh adductors. Because we are using a dumbbell, depending on your mobility you may want to elevate yourself off the ground so you have more range of motion and can go deeper. So feel free to stand on plate, steps, or even benches.
