Home Squats With Cans


  • Stand with your knees slightly bent, feet shoulder width apart and knees lined up over your ankles. Keep your back straight. Hold the cans above your shoulders or hanging down to your sides.
  • 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.
