Stand facing forward with your chest up. Place your feet shoulder-width apart or slightly wider. Extend your hands straight out in front of you to help keep your balance. Bend at your knees and hips, sticking your butt out like you're sitting into an imaginary chair. Keep your chest lifted and your spine neutral, and do not let your lower back round. Squat down as low as you can, keeping your head and chest lifted. Keep your knees over your ankles and press your weight back into your heels. Keep your body tight, and push through your heels to bring yourself back to the starting position.

The Sumo Squat is a lower-body strength exercise that’s a variation of a standard squat. The key difference in this squat is that you take a wider stance and position your feet turned out.
Start by doing a regular squat, engage your core, and jump up explosively. When you land, lower your body back into the squat position to complete one rep.
Start lying on back with your arms extended overhead on the floor and your legs straight resting on a mat. At the same time, and with control, lift arms, head, shoulder blades, and legs off the floor.
