Squats are one of the best exercises for the legs, buttocks and many other stabilizing muscle groups. This is a variation that uses the exercise band as opposed to free weights or no weights or resistance. If you would like to vary the challenge of this exercise try changing the strength of the exercise bands you are using.
- Start this exercise standing with feet shoulder width a part, and band around both feet. Your toes should be pointing slightly outwards. Band should come up and behind the back, hands grasping handles at the shoulders.
- Inhale and bend at the knees into a squat position. Make sure to keep your back straight and look directly forward. If you have problems with leaning forward to much you can try looking slightly up. Exhale and release back to start position for one rep.
- Start with 10-12 squats and increase as desired.
