Squat

For most people the squat position is performed multiple times a day, most likely without even noticing! Although this is a difficult movement to master, an effective squat can decrease your risk of a lower back injury and is a great movement to improve lower body strength.

Key points:

  1. Start in standing.
  2. Sit your bottom back, keeping your weight through your heels.
  3. See if you can maintain a neutral curve in your lower back.
  4. At the bottom of the movement, the shin should be close to parallel with the line of your body.
  5. If you look down at your feet, you should be able to see your toes!
