Overview

The wide squat thrust is an exercise that targets the quadriceps muscles. It is performed by starting in a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes turned out slightly. Then, you lower yourself into a squat position, keeping your back straight and your knees behind your toes. As you come up out of the squat, you extend your legs out to the sides, so that your feet are wider than shoulder-width apart. You then lower yourself back down into the squat position and repeat the movement. This exercise can be done for multiple sets of repetitions, and the weight can be increased as you get stronger.
