Overview

The dumbbell sumo squat is a popular lower-body movement using a single dumbbell held in front of the legs. It is performed with a wider than shoulder-width stance, which increases the demand on the glutes, hamstrings, and adductors while still benefiting the quads, core, and upper body. It is usually performed for moderate to high reps, at least 8-12 reps per set, as part of the lower-body portion of a workout.
