How to Do

How to Do Squat With 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.
