In, Figure 1, it shows a detailed proper squat being performed with a barbell.

Steps:

  1. Stand with your feet just past shoulder width apart and your toes pointing slightly outward.
  2. Begin to slowly lower your hips back, keeping your pelvic bone tilted and bending your knees.
  3. Make sure that your hamstrings are parallel to the floor and be sure to keep you head up and back straight, NOT FORWARD.
  4. You should feel it in your Glutes and Erector Spinae as you drop lower.
  5. Always keep your core tight and tense for proper technique.
  6. When you start to go back up, push through your heels.
  7. Don’t lock your knees when you reach your standing position.

Training Tip: It’s recommended that you have a knowledgeable workout buddy or trainer help you make sure your stance and technique are properly executed.
