Lower Body: Basic Squat

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold your hands comfortably in front of your chest to help you stay balanced, and bend your knees, lowering your hips deeply, so your thighs are parallel with the floor. Make sure to keep your weight back in your heels.
  • Then rise back up, straightening the legs completely and squeezing the glutes at the top of the movement to get the most out of the exercise.
  • This counts as one rep.
