Here's a trick for when the hotel gym doesn't go above 50lb dumbbells but you still need to get your squat work in.
The Band + Dumbbell Goblet Squat targets your glutes and core. It will strengthen those areas as well as help you to improve hip mobility.
Sit your butt down as if there's a chair behind you. Stay balanced in the middle of your feet. Avoid tipping forward on your toes or back on your heels. Keep your core engaged to keep a flat back throughout. If you can't keep your tailbone from tucking or rolling under you at the bottom position then you're going to far.
HOW TO USE:
Use this on lower body day or within a total body lift. This exercise is a great warm-up for barbell squats or as the highlight of a hotel gym workout. Shoot for 2-4 sets of 6-12 repetitions.
