Squats are an important part of learning to pick up things off the floor, strengthening your thighs and many different exercises. Here is how to squat correctly.
- Feet straight, toes up
- Bend at the ankle, knee, hips, pelvis, low back and pelvis equally on both sides
- Knees stay behind toes and inside ankles
- Keep stomach engaged, the deeper the squat the closer the hips to the lower thigh muscles contract
- Arms over head, shoulder blades back and down
- Navel to spine, pelvis floor tight
