How To Do A Squat | Beginners Tutorial
A fitness series aimed at those fantasising about a super-fit body thats tight and well toned but have no idea how to achieve it!
This is part of a series that teaches you the basics, the bare necessities of working out if you will.
Any good workout capable of sculpting your body into that of a marble statue will entail the basics, all of which are covered in this series.
This one specifically is all about the noble squat – the one your booty is especially grateful for. So lets get right into it.
Your stance for the perfect squad will have your legs exactly hip-width distance apart, for all first timers though you can increase the gap and widen them just a little bit more to make it simpler.
Pointing your toes outward just the tiniest bit is also helpful.
Once you've taken this stance, make sure your knees are in a neutral position, which basically means they need to be kept loose. Do not stiffen, point them outward or even knock them together.
Now that you're ready to go, assume the squat position and make like your about to sit on an invisible chair.
As you do this, ensure that you do not round your back or curve it inward, keep it arched.
Inhale as you squat as low as your glutes permit and exhale on the way up. And repeat.
The recommended number of sets and repetitions are:
For Beginners: 2 sets of 10 reps For Regulars: 2 sets of 30 reps
You can even add a bar weight to your shoulders once you have the hang of things to increase intensity and challenge yourself further.
Have a glute day!
