Squats is King of Exercise!

Main Muscle Group(s) : Thighs Hamstring, Butt

How to Execute:
– Standing shoulder-width apart
– Two principle to uphold:
1) Keep Back neutral at all times
2) While lowering yourself down, tilt your butt backwards as if you are sitting down on a chair
– You can stretch out your hands forward to balance yourself
– Concentrate on using your lower body to lift yourself back up into original position

Safety Measures:
1) Your knees must not go over your foot
        (Draw a imaginary vertical line from your foot upwards)
        (To prevent that, you have to tilt your butt backwards)
2) Keep your back neutral at all times
3) Place a chair at the back should you are a beginner doing this for the first time

For Increased Difficulty:
1) Jumping Squat: Jump up after every squat and land softly on your knees
2) Sumo Squat: Widen out your original position like a sumo preparing for his match. Sumo squat will target more on your butt.
