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, or for more of a challenge, place your hands behind your head. Keeping your weight focused in your heels, bend your knees, lowering your hips deeply so your thighs are parallel with the floor.
- Press through your heels to 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.
