Drop It Like a Squat

April is our Squat Challenge month, so I thought I’d do a little tutorial/brush-up course on how to do a squat.

1.  Start feet shoulder width apart, hands at your sides, keep your spine in a neutral position, head up, with eyes open and looking forward.

3.  You can either choose to hold it in the down position for a certain time period (I suggest 30 seconds to start with), or you can return to standing to complete one repetition.
