I'm Renee Byrd with Camp Gladiator in Dallas, Texas here to talk about performing a squat with a bicep curl. The first thing you need to know is the importance of using proper form and technique when performing the squat. The first thing you're going to do is make sure that your feet are right underneath your hips, maybe a tad wider but not much. You want your toes pointed out, think about a clock, think about eleven o'clock and one o'clock, eleven and one and what you're going to do is make sure that your chest is up, your abs are pulled in, your shoulders are always back and you are lifting with your legs and not with your back. So with your dumbbells in hand, again, get right back into that comfortable squat position, never reaching forward so that your knees are coming forward but sitting back and down almost like you're going to sit in a chair. Once you get to the top you're going to turn your dumbbells in and perform your bicep curl. Some very important things to look out for guys, like I said before, the very first thing, never reaching down, having those knees come forward because that's going to be really hard on your knees over time. The second thing is you don't want to hunch over. You want to make sure that you are not using your back every time you reach over. Remember, shoulders have got to be down. You've got to drive your heels down when you perform this squat, making sure that your toes are loose almost like they are waving at the person in front of you, never locking out your knees. Again, I'm Renee Byrd, with Camp Gladiator and we just covered how to perform a squat with a bicep curl.
