#30DaysToStrongerKnees Day 15: Suitcase Squat

Let’s take weighted movements to the next level and put one in both hands! Again, keep your posture tall and move slowly with control.

For this exercise you are going to need a pair  dumbbells or kettlebells. Start standing with your feet hip distance apart. Grasp your weights in your hands and hold them by your sides. Slowly, sit down and back while maintaining a tall upright posture, keeping your weights at your sides moving with your body. When you feel a good stretch in your glutes, fire your glutes  to return to standing.

Your goal is to keep the weights in line with your body while keeping your posture tall. Starting out, I would do 3 sets of 10-12 reps. This movement allows you to add weight but keeps you counterweighted to maintain balance.
