Squats strengthen leg, rear and stomach muscles. Correct form helps you avoid injury and get the most from your workout:
1. With feet at least shoulder-width apart and eyes ahead, use your legs to lower yourself, as if sitting down. As you sink, raise arms in front.
2. Keep your knees behind your toes. Sit back with your hips as much as possible (a little awkward!). Keep your stomach muscles tight.
3. After you reach a seated position, slowly stand up while lowering arms.
See how many you can do. Start with a goal of six sets of five repetitions.
