    Squats are an amazing exercise!

    • Glutes
    • Quads
    • Hamstrings
    • Hips

How to Perform a Proper Basic Squat Movement

To start on the way to achieving the 30 day squat challenge results you want, learn how to do the basic squat step by step.

  1. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, lift your chin up and push your chest up and out.
  2. Raise your arms up in front of you to the shoulder height with the palms down, just like you are getting ready to dive into water.
  3. Squat down like you are about to sit in a chair. Your thighs should be parallel to the floor. It’s easy if you arch your back slightly and put your weight in your heels.
  4. Return to a standing position.
