I Did 90 Cossack Squats Every Day For A Week – Here’s What Happened To My Legs And Hips

The Cossack squat—a deeper variation of the lateral or side squat—is a quad-burning lower-body exercise. Strengthens your quads, external gluteus (gluteus medius), hamstrings, adductors (inner thighs), core and back muscles.

Exercise is also part of mobility training and CrossFit routines to help improve lower body flexibility and mobility in the ankles, knees and hips. In yoga, the move is better known as Skandasana — the half squat pose — and offers deep hip-opening benefits while stretching the inner legs and groins of yogis everywhere.
