HOW TO DO A SQUAT EXERCISE

The squat is an excellent upper and lower body workout that primarily targets your thighs and butt, but also works the hamstrings and lower back.

 

STEP BY STEP GUIDE

  1. Plant your feet flat on the ground, about shoulder-width apart.
  2. Point your feet slightly outward, not straight ahead.
  3. Never let your knees extend beyond your toes.
  4. Look straight ahead. Bend at your knees as if you were going to sit back in a chair, keeping your heels on the floor.
  5. Pull in your abs, and keep your lower back in a near neutral position (a slightly arched back might be unavoidable).
  6. Tighten your whole body when you perform the squat.
  7. Lower yourself. In a controlled manner slowly lower yourself down and back so that your upper legs are nearly parallel with the floor. Extend your arms for balance.
  8. Keep the upper body tight at all times.
