Doing compound exercises like sumo squats that activate your major lower body muscles helps in improving your athletic performance. Sumo squats focus on your adductors (inner thighs) better than other variations of the standard squat exercise. This move also targets your glutes and core which gives you better stability and balance. Training these muscles supports your body while doing weight-lifting exercises. Doing the sumo squats with the correct form delivers the desired results while making everyday activities easier to do.
