New Move to Try Now: Sumo Squat

Sumo blog

There’s a seemingly endless number of ways to workout, yet many of us fall victim to routines. It happens. You hit the gym day after day, and do your regular weight circuit or cardio class, and you’re done. But while routines can be a good thing, your body and muscles actually crave (and need) change in order to get stronger.

Why not break the mold and try something new this week? Adding even just one new move to your next workout can activate a different muscle group and spice up a stale routine. Plus, change can trigger your excitement and motivation muscles, too.

One of my favorite, often-forgotten-about moves is the sumo squat. Try it now and let me know what you think!

  • Question: I do the bulk of my exercise in the pool. The description says it’s water resistant. Is that good enough for using it in the pool? Otherwise, my calorie count will not be accurate.

  • I would really like to be able to buy different color holders for the fitbit one. How about doing some new colors other than black and burgundy of which I have.

    You have cool colors in the other fit bits???????

  • I have a Fitbit Flex. Can it be used in a swimming pool? I wear it in the shower, sometimes, without a problem, but that’s not the same as submerging it in water. We went to a water park recently and I took it off to be on the safe side.

  • I wish they made the zip water proof. It’s the first thing I put on in the morning and the last thing I take off at night. With a change in eating , and my zip I am down 70 pounds and have kept it off for over a year now. I love FitBit. I do have a question about tracking when biking or using a riding mower, should I remove fitbit while doing these task, the riding mower seems to add up steps, I feel like I’m not really earning ? Any advise?
