SQUATS

TARGETING: QUADRICEPS AND GLUTES

  • Stand with feet shoulder width apart. The hands can be placed either on the hips, side of the head, out to the front for balance or holding a weight for added difficulty. 
  • The knees should then bend lowering the backside to the ground until the thighs are parallel to the ground and the knees are bent at 90 degrees.
  • Straighten the legs until upright again without locking out the knees and repeat.
  • Do not let the knees come further forward than the toes and keep the spine neutral.
