HIIT Exercise: How To Do Squats

How To Do Squats

Targeted Muscle Groups: Legs

How to do squats step by step:

  1. Stand with your feet a little wider than hip-width apart, your toes turned out slightly and your arms resting at your sides.
  2. Bend your knees slowly, pushing your butt and hips out and down behind you as if you are sitting down into a chair. Keep your head and back straight and your knees aligned over your ankles. Keep your weight balanced evenly between the front and back of your feet.
  3. Lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Don’t let your knees fall inward. As you lower down, bring your arms up and in front of your chest.
  4. Push through your feet and straighten your legs to come up while lowering your arms back to your side.
  5. Repeat
