Exercise Families: Squat, Isometric
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Stand with your arms at your sides or hands together and plant both feet on the floor slightly outside of shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.
Inhale. Looking straight ahead, bend both hips and knees, ensuring that the knees point toward the toes. Continue bending the knees until your upper legs are parallel with the floor, ensuring that your back remains between a 45- to 90-degree angle to your hips.
Hold the static squat position for the specified amount of time. Be sure to engage your abs and maintain good posture as you hold the position.
FAQ: How low should I squat?
If you can't squat until your upper legs are parallel with the floor, squat as low as you can, keeping your chest up and lower back arched.
