Dumbbell Front Squat
To do the Dumbbell Front Squat, hold a dumbbell in each hand. Bring the dumbbells up to the fronts of your shoulders with your palms facing back toward you and your elbows pointing down toward the ground.
Holding them up at your shoulders, begin to squat down, sitting your butt back and down while keeping your chest up. Make sure to sit back. Do not let your heels come up or your back round just to try and get lower.
Squat as low as you can with good form and then drive straight back up to standing, squeezing your glutes at the top. Do not come forward and lift your heels as you drive up.
Repeat, sinking your butt down while keeping your chest up and core engaged.
