Proper Squat Form - Eights & Weights Video

I got a chance to make a video for my favorite exercise! Today, we're looking at the proper form for a squat. As you know, this exercise works out your bum, thighs, and even your core if done right. Here are a few points to note with the squat:
  • Keep your knees behind your toes. If your knees are going beyond your toes, you're not working your bum as hard and you could hurt your joints.
  • Keep your upper body as upright as possible with your shoulders down and core tight. You get a core workout if you do that as well.
  • For balance, you can straighten your hands out as you lower in to the squat. Otherwise, keep your arms beside you.
  • Squeeze your bum as you lower down and as you come up. You get an even better workout that way.
So I've told you how to do it, and now I'll show you how to do it. I put together the video below. Watch and enjoy.

Cheers Eights & Weights!
