Prying Goblet Squats - Try this incredible warm up exercise

Try this Prying Goblet Squat for an increase in your squat mobility. This exercise is great to do with a light bell before you do Goblet and Double Kettlebell Front Squats. 
Here is why we do them. 

- opens up your adductors and groin area.
- creates a deeper squat
- grooves a more efficient Goblet or Double Front Squat
- activates your abductors 
QUICK TIPS

- grab a very light bell by the horns
- Stand about shoulder width apart.
- INHALE, then pull yourself down in to a comfortable squat with your elbows touching the insides of your knees
-make sure heels and toes stay on the floor without coming up.
- Gently push your elbows in to your knees to pry them apart to open your squat wider which will gently stretch your groin and adductors.
- Drop your hips down further, once you've opened up, and take deep breaths at the very bottom.
- Try to keep your chest up and tall without collapsing your shoulders.
- HISS and EXHALE to stand up safely. Very important that you use your breathe on the way up. 
*note the depth you'll get with the prying squat is lower than a loaded goblet or double front squat. You only relax in to a stretch with this type of squat when you have a VERY light bell or no bell at all.
Try this and let me know what you think!
