How to Do Squats With Your Bodyweight
No excessive tension in abdominals, hip flexors, and or quadriceps.
Each squat with bodyweight should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately stop squatting with bodyweight.
Beginning Squats With Bodyweight
Warm-ups stretch the back of the thighs and the lower back.
Squat With Bodyweight Movement
1. Stand facing a mirror with chest up, feet straight and shoulder-width apart; lower back contracted.
2. Bend at the knees and lean forward, keeping your chest up in the mirror.
3. Drop your butt down to a halfway point, slowly, holding for 1 second at the bottom, and standing back up slowly.
This exercise is a good, compound way to train your legs safely when in the beginning stages of a lower-body exercise program.
