THE SQUAT
The Squat is a lower body exercise. You can do the body weight version, without added resistance (also called Body weight Squat or Air Squat), or with weights such as a barbell (Front Squat and Back Squat are variations of the Barbell Squat).

The Squat exercise mainly targets the thighs (quadriceps & hamstrings) and the glutes. However, core strength & stability, ankle mobility, back muscles, calves, and other factors play an important role when you are doing this exercise.

SET UP BEFORE YOU SQUAT:
Find a foot stance that feels best for you. Pointing your toes slightly outwards helps some, but keeping them parallel is fine, too. If you’re not sure what’s best, start by putting your feet shoulder-width apart and pointed about 15 degrees outwards.
Tense your abs like someone is about to punch you.
Look straight ahead and stand tall!
