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