SQUAT

Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, back straight, shoulders down, toes pointed slightly out and arm straight out in front to help with balance.

Keeping your back straight, lower your hips as if you were sitting down in a chair. If possible, lower your hips to your ankle or until your thighs are parallel to the floor.  Make sure your knees do not pass over your toes and keep your abs taut. Rise back up slowly and then repeat.
