The squat is an excellent exercise that works many different muscles of the lower body. It can be an excellent exercise a part of a gym or home routine to build strength and endurance.
Stand with your knees and feet hip width apart. Feet face forward. Start to bend your hip and knees as if you are going to sit in a chair. Your weight should be slightly back on your heels. Knees should stay in line with the second toe and should not cross the shoe. Your hips should create a deep crease in the front as you think about your sit bones going wide. You should not squat any deeper then 90 degrees.
