Basic Exercise

The Squat      4- Steps

1) Begin with your feet flat on the floor, shoulder with apart. The majority of your body weight should be on your heels.

2) Keep your back straight and eyes looking straight ahead with your arms extended out in front of your chest.

3) Slowly lower your body and bend your knees, like when sitting in a chair. You may do this over a chair, if needed. *Do not let your knees go forward beyond your toes.

4) Lower your weight until your thighs are parallel to the floor or when you make light contact with the edge of the chair. Then, slowly rise up, and repeat til desired amount of repetitions, based upon level of fitness.

Muscles targeted during this exercise: legs, hips, lower back, and abdominals
