SQUAT – Stand with your feet hip width apart or slightly wider, keeping your chest lifted and your hands held out in front of you. Sit back and down as if onto an imaginary chair keeping your head forward and allowing your upper body to bend forward a little. Lower down until your thighs are parallel to the floor making sure your toes are behind your knees and your weight is through your heels. Keeping your core engaged throughout, push through your heels to bring yourself back to starting position.
