Move of the Month - Goblet Squat

Grab a dumbbell and hold it vertically by one end against your chest.  Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart with toes angled out slightly (15-20 degrees).  Drive hips back first and then bend at knees to start the descent.  As you descend drive your knees outward.  The knees should be in line with the toes.  Descend until your elbows touch the inner thighs.  You can even drive your knees out with your elbows at the bottom position.  Once at the bottom, reverse direction by driving through your heels and stand up straight.
