Exercise of The Week: The Basic Squat
This month is going to be all about squats. There are literally a ton of squat variations and this month we are going to take you through a few of them, and of course these will lead to the challenge calendar. So this week we will start with the basic squat. So how do you do it?
Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart with your toes pointing forward. Raise your arms out in front of you for balance. You should look like A. Now you are going to bend your knees and lowering your hips. Make sure to keep your thighs parallel with the floor if you can. Make sure that you are keeping the weight on your heels. You should look like B. Now as you rise back up into start position make sure that you are squeezing your glutes to get the most out of the exercise. That is one rep. See that is all there is to it! Add 2-3 sets of 10 to your routine.
