While I love a good deadlift, the squat is still a very important exercise for a mountain biker’s lower body strength development. When done properly, it is a great way to build the core and leg strength you need to improve your standing pedaling power and endurance.
In my experience, the Goblet Squat is the best way to learn how to squat. It is also a kick butt exercise as well and a go-to lower body exercise in all of my routines. In this video I go over the Goblet squat and share some important details can help you avoid some common mistakes and get even more out of this great exercise.
