4 Strength Exercises That Boost Flexibility

Deep Goblet Squats

Goblet squats are an excellent exercise to teach you proper squat form while working on lower body strength and hip mobility. Stand with your feet wider than hip-distance apart, your toes angled slightly outward. Hold a dumbbell or kettlebell at your shoulders in both hands. Press your hips back and lower your glutes toward the ground, maintaining your weight in your heels. Keep your torso upright and tall. When your quads are at or below parallel with the ground, check to make sure your elbows are inside your knees to make sure you’re getting a deep stretch through your hips. You can even pause here, pressing your elbows against your inner thighs before pressing through your heels and extending your knees and hips to return to standing.
