The squat is one of the most fundamental movements we do as humans and requires strength and flexibility to perform a squat correctly. The inability to squat causes many people to move into assisted living as they get older.
Stand with feet just wider then hips
Toes turn out slightly about 30 degrees
Keep your head and chest up, and keep your weight in your heels
Squat down until your hip joint is below your knee
You should be in a strong stable position as if to catch a basketball pass if someone were going to pass it to you.
Stand up keeping your knees pushed out and your chest up
Repeat 10 times 3-4 times per day
