Featured Video Play Icon


  1. Stand tall in a shoulder-width stance with feet pointed out.
  2. Rest a barbell on top of your chest and securely hold the bar with an underhand grip with your elbows up. Your triceps will remain parallel to the floor in order to support the weight of the bar.
  3. Slowly with control lower your body into a squat, only going down as low as you feel comfortable.
  4. Shift your weight into your heels and push yourself back up to standing. Don’t worry if this isn’t perfect the first time. Perfecting your squat is going to take practice.
