Squat Overview

The squat is a fundamental lower body exercise that targets the quads, hamstrings, and glutes, enhancing strength and stability through a full range of motion.

Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed

None (bodyweight) or Barbell/Dumbbells for added resistance

How To Perform the Squat

  1. Start by standing tall with your feet shoulder-width apart, toes slightly pointed out.
  2. Engage your core and keep your chest up.
  3. Initiate the movement by bending at the hips and knees, lowering your body as if sitting back into a chair.
  4. Ensure your knees track over your toes and do not cave inward.
  5. Lower down until your thighs are parallel to the floor (or as far as your mobility allows).
  6. Press through your heels to return to the starting position, extending your hips and knees.
  7. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
