How to Do Cossack Squats

Cossack squats should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop doing Cossack squats.


Beginning Cossack Squatting

To get started, broaden your stance so that your legs make a triangle with the ground. You should point your toes straight ahead.


Cossack Squatting Movement

1. Inhale, then shift your weight to your right leg, bending your right knee and sitting as far back as possible.

2. While rotating your left foot on your heel, toe up, keep your left leg extended.

3. You should keep your right heel on the ground and your torso upright.

4. Exhale and push yourself back up to the starting position.

5. Repeat the steps while inhaling again and lowering your weight onto your left leg.


Cossack Squatting Benefits

The quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and hip adductors are all targeted in Cossack squats, which also work your core, including your abdominals and lower back. The joints and connective tissues of your hip, knee, and ankle will also be targeted.
