Bodyweight Squat



The bodyweight squat is maybe the first exercise which you have to learn in the beginning of your fitness trainings. It will give you correct posture and stability in all musle groups. It is also great warming up exercise and for the advanced trainees could be used as good cardio exercise


Stand upright with your feet wider than your shoulder width. Cross your arms in front of you and keep them parallel to the floor. Slightly bend your knees, laid back your hips and puff your chest out. This is your starting position.


Breathe in and begin the squat by sitting back with your hips and flexing your knees. Continue the movement until your thighs are parallel to the floor and then return back to starting position as you breathe out.
