Techniques

To perform the Squat safely, please follow these steps:
  1. Stand with feet hip width apart
  2. Place your arms directly out in front of you to give you balance
  3. Slowly lower yourself as if you were sitting on a seat
  4. Ideally lower yourself until the top of your thighs are parallel to the floor, if you can't go that low, go as far as possible and over time keep going slightly lower
  5. Now slowly return to the starting position
  6. Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 until you can no longer maintain correct technique
