Squats! Everybody loves squats. Squats are honestly amazing for your legs and booty. They even help strengthen your back too! They’re just all round awesome and great for shaping your body.

P.s sorry for my awkward face hahaha but I do love the way my arms are looking!

TECHNIQUE

  • Begin in standing position with feet at hip width or slightly wider apart with toes pointing forward.

  • Flex at your hips and knees to lower your seat to knee height, with your knees positioned over your feet and not extending past your toes

  • Push through your heels and engage your glutes to return to the starting position

  • Keep chest up, shoulders back and core engaged throughout the movement

ERRORS TO WATCH FOR

  • Incomplete range of motion

  • Weight forward into the ball of foot rather tan sitting back into heels

  • Knees tracking in front of the toes or buckling inward

MODIFICATION

  • Modify the range of motion in the descent or hip/knee flexion

The hardest thing to teach an athlete is the ability to suffer. Those who know how to suffer, know how to win.
