Let's learn how to properly perform a squat. Start with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Cross your arms in front, so touch your left hand to your right shoulder and vise versa, pointing your elbows straight ahead. Now from here, shift your weight, to the ball of your feet, bend your knees, get as close to 90 degrees as you can, looking straight ahead and from here, push back up to the starting position. This going to be great for strengthening your thighs, or your quadriceps, as well as your butt, or your gluts. And it's also going to be great to work on your posture. That's how to properly perform a squat.
