How to Squat:

Get in a comfortable upright stance with your feet shoulder width apart. Your toes should be pointed straight ahead or slightly outward, never inward or knee strain will result.

Focus your vision straight ahead. Do not tilt your head backwards or raise your eyes in your head as this will disrupt your balance.

Keeping your heels planted firmly on the floor, inhale and move your hips back and downward. Do not start by bending the knees.

Continue downward, by bending the knees, but be careful not to allow your knees to move forward. This will save you stress on your knees.

When the thighs reach parallel, begin exhaling and return to the starting position. There should be no sideways movement, especially in the knee or hip area.
