Squats


1. Stand with feet hip- or shoulder-width apart.

2. Hold a medium-heavy dumbbell in front of your body with arms straight and elbows slightly bent.

3. Bend the knees and lower into a squat. Stop when your knees are at 90 degree angles OR before you lose the natural arch of your back.

4. Contract the glutes and legs while stabilizing your body with a strong torso.

5. Slowly stand back up without locking the knees and repeat for 1-3 sets of 10-16 repetitions.

6. Always keep the knees in line with the toes.
