3 Best Home Squat Variations

Squats are a great exercise for targeting multiple muscle groups, but doing the same basic squat over and over can get boring.

Adding variations to your squat routine can help target different muscle groups and add some variety to your workout.

The first variation to try is the sumo squat, which targets the inner thighs and glutes.

The second variation is the jump squat, which adds a plyometric element to your workout and targets the quads and glutes.


The third variation is the Bulgarian split squat, which targets the quads and glutes while also improving balance and stability.

To perform a sumo squat, stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart and toes turned out. Lower your body down into a squat, keeping your knees in line with your toes.

To perform a jump squat, start with a basic squat and then explode up into a jump, landing softly back in a squat position.
