How to Do a Cossack Squat! | Movement Breakdown
"The Cossack squat is a powerful movement for developing mobility, strength, and control in the hips, knees, and ankles. It's great for athletes, powerlifters, weightlifters, and anyone looking to improve their lower body strength and flexibility.
Here's how you do it:
Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes pointing forward. Take a big step to the side with your right foot, and turn your toes out slightly. Shift your weight to your right leg and lower your body down as far as you can while keeping your left leg straight. Your right knee should be bent, and your right foot should be flat on the ground. Keep your back straight and your chest up.
From here, push through your right foot to stand back up. As you do this, bring your left foot in so that your feet are shoulder-width apart again. Repeat on the other side by stepping out with your left foot and lowering down while keeping your right leg straight.
Continue alternating sides for the desired number of reps or time.
The Cossack squat is an excellent exercise for improving hip mobility, flexibility, and strength. It targets the quads, hamstrings, glutes, and adductors, which are the muscles responsible for moving the hips and legs.
If you're having trouble with the Cossack squat, try using a chair or a wall for support. Place your hand on the chair or wall as you lower down, and use it to help you stand back up.
Remember to keep your back straight and your chest up throughout the movement. This will help you maintain proper posture and prevent injury."
