Overview

The barbell wide squat is an exercise that targets the quadriceps muscles of the thighs. It is performed by standing with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart and holding a barbell across your upper back. You then bend your knees and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor, keeping your chest up and your back straight. You then push yourself back up to the starting position. This exercise can be performed for multiple sets and repetitions, and the weight of the barbell can be adjusted to suit your fitness level. The barbell wide squat is a great exercise for building strength and size in the quadriceps muscles. It can also help to improve your flexibility and coordination.
