With your feet slightly wider than hip distance apart, bend your knees and shift your hips back as if you are about to take a seat. Keep your weight in your heels and try not to extend your knees past your toes. Try to lower down until you are just about to touch the chair, and then stand back up.

Squats are a great way to tone and strengthen your hips, thighs, and buttocks. They can also make daily activities easier. One of the great things about doing squats is that you don’t need any fitness equipment. You simply use your own body weight. Make sure to talk with your doctor before starting any new exercise routine.
