Squat

Target area(s): glutes, quads, hamstrings and calves

How to perform a squat:

Stand with feet hip-width apart, toes facing straight ahead and arms straight out.

Slowly bend the knees and lower hips towards the floor, keeping your torso straight and abs pulled in tight. Keep your knees behind your toes; make sure everything’s pointing in the same direction. Do not go lower than 90 degrees.

Return to starting position.

Complete 3 sets of 12-16 reps, resting for 60 seconds in between each set.
