How to do squats

Stand with your feet apart, directly under your hips, and place your hands on your hips. Standing up tall, put your shoulders back, lift your chest, and pull in your abdominal muscles. Bend your knees while keeping your upper body as straight as possible, as if you were lowering yourself onto a seat behind you. Lower yourself as far as you can without leaning your upper body more than a few inches forward. Be careful not to lock your knees when you reach a standing position, straighten your legs. Repeat for three sets of 10 to 15 reps.

Tip: Don’t allow your knees to go too far forward. You don’t want them to stick out past your toes.
