How to Do a Tutting Squat Dance Move

Learn how to do the tutting squat dance move from fitness expert Rachel Warren in this hip-hop dance workout video from Howcast.


All right, you guys, this next one is very fun. It's an upper body workout as well as working your legs, but it's more so just fun to do, and you're going to look really cool doing it, okay? It's called the tutting squat. So you're going to take your feet wider than your shoulders, and you're going to rotate your toes out just a little bit. You don't have to yank your toes completely sideways, because that's going to hurt your knees. Keep them forward, it's just a little bit of an external rotation. Bend your knees, keep your core engaged, and now bring your arms up and your fingers towards your head, okay?

And tugging is an old school dance move where you're just popping your arms in any which way you want, right? So I'm going to give you a basic one so that you can follow with me, and take it with you. So bend your knees, fingers towards your head, arms are up, so you want the 90 degree angle, you want to contract your biceps, keep your shoulders engaged, and your upper back muscles, so everything from here up is working. You're going to start here, and all you're going to do is flip your fingers out, okay? So in and out, in and out, from here, in, down, out, and in. So the wrists are rotating, you're working your shoulders, those arms engaged, four, three, two, one, bring it back out.

One, out, and you can even look at your hands, and up now take them down, and out, and in, and out, and in, and bring it out, okay? Take a second to relax. So with this one you got these arms, right, out and in, out and in, then you can switch it up. What if you take one up, one down, all right? So I'm going to do the basic one I showed you, and then I want you to get creative with it, and see what you can do at home with these arms, okay? Follow along with those first basics, and then we're just going to do something that comes to us, okay? So, nice low squat, get those arms up, fingers are going to go out and in, here we go, we have a out, in, out, in, four more, now take it down, and out, out, out, good, bring it back up, up. Now let's get crazy with it, just whatever you want, hit, hit, bah, bah, bah, yes, or just this, yeah, down and up, hit, hit. Yeah, if you're not following me at home, that's fine, right? You can make up your own thing, but you're going to start to really feel the work in your shoulders. I want you to keep your arms engaged, yes?

Upper arms are strengthening, shoulders are strengthening, biceps are working, all right? Just take it one more time, I know you want to do it one more time, right? Here we go, let's start with the basic, in, out, in, out, in, out, now low, here we go, in, out, in, good, now whatever you want, hit it, hit it, hit it, hit it, hit it, hit it, hit it, good, up and down, right, or in and out, for four, three, two, one. All right, good, enjoy that one, yeah, it's super fun, you'll feel the workout in your arms, you'll feel the burn, do it for like 30 seconds, see if you can just get in that squat and do it for 30 seconds, you'll feel it, I promise. Enjoy.
