Over the past few weeks, I have had lots of people ask me about squats . In addition, I see tons of trainers using stability balls and smith machines to teach their clients how to squat. In my opinion, they are doing a huge disservice to the person paying for a session and come a cross as a lazy trainer.
Think about the last time you picked something heavy up from the ground? You have to use your hips, core, and the entire body to pick the heavy object up. A smith machine or stability ball will not teach you to move the correct way.
This is why I love the goblet squat. By holding a dumbbell or kettlebell in front of the body , the trainee is forced to turn on their core and stabilize the entire body.

Where did I learn it? As an intern at Cressey Sports Performance, but the originality comes from Strength Coach Dan John
