How to do squats
Moving from the standing position begins. While wearing a suitable shoe, stand on a smooth surface and make sure the ground is not lizzled.
Open the legs twice as wide as the shoulder.
You can also use dumbbells, weights and barbells depending on the level of readiness and power. Otherwise, you can put your hands together and hold your chest in front of you, or hold your hands straight and pulled to the front.
Begin: Slowly bend your knees and try to sit on your feet. In this section, the amount of falling and range depends on your ability. The lower the training pressure will be. (Suppose you are sitting on the chair.)
The body weight should be on the heels of the legs so that you can lift the toe easily with the feet while walking. During exercise, burning muscles on the thighs, this indicates the correct movement.
Continue back in standby after a few seconds.
By repeating this movement to the required number, you have strengthened the muscle of the leg.
