Hi guys! This is Max Tapper again for Howcast. Today, I’m going to show you guys how to do a squat. Yes! The squat is one of those awesome, full body exercises that targets your legs, your abdominals, even your upper body muscles, and I’m going to show you how to do it.

Initially, what we’re looking for is to get on the bar and get this bar on our traps, right around here, exact position. Now, we’re going to press up. Now, slow and controlled, we’re going to lower that weight down, and our initial motion should be butt, back, and sit, like we’re sitting in a chair.

Squat, back, pause, up. All right?

Squat, back, pause at the bottom, and up.

One more time. Slow on the way down. Squat, back, pause, and up.

Let me show you from the side because there’s some very important things that we need to do in the squat.

Initially, our body position needs to be here. First motion is back. It’s never this. That’s what a lot of people do in a squat, and they do it wrong because they put their weight on their toes. It goes into their knees. What we want you to do is sit back, stand on your heels, butt back, like you’re sitting on a chair.

Squat, back, pause, slowly up.

Squat, back, pause, slowly up.

That is the proper way to do a squat. Now, get out there, challenge yourself, again guys, use a weight that you can definitely control. The rep range you want to be in is about 12. Use a weight you can control, get out there, be safe, and have a good time.
