Home Squats


  • Stand with your knees slightly bent, feet shoulder width apart and knees lined up over your ankles. Keep your back straight.
  • Slowly bent at the knees until your legs make a 90 degree angle. You may have to lean forward a little bit to keep your balance.
  • Slowly return to the starting position, contracting your thighs.


  • The motion is similar to sitting in a chair.
