Persistence is one of the most parts of losing weight according to most fitness coaches, and it’s true!
But, if we’re being honest, working out daily is not the most exciting thing to do.
However, it’s easier to strive for that perfect figure you’ve been after for a while when you know it won’t take a lot of time to achieve.
Working out and eating right is hard, but it’s just part of the journey of achieving the look you really want.
But when your exercising, it’s important to make sure you’re using equipment and doing certain things correctly.
One of the areas a lot of people struggle with is how to squat correctly.
Mastering the perfect can be hard if you don’t know how to do it.
But luckily for you, I have the perfect guide when it comes to mastering those squats.
Just think of it as a beginner’s guide to a perfect squat. This exercise is simple, and all you’ll need are some comfortable clothes, training shoes, and a hair band.
How To Properly Squat
Step 1. The Initial Pose
First things first, stand tall with your feet a little more than a hip-width apart and in a straight line.
Your toes should point slightly out, and it’s best if you relax your shoulders while lifting your chest.
Then, you should extend your arms in front of you and squeeze your glutes.
Step 2. Start squatting
Keep your back as straight as possible, while you engage your core.
Then push your buttocks out and start bending your knees. Your weight should always be on your heels, not on your toes.
Step 3. Full Squat
You should sit down with your body weight on your heels, and continue going down until your hips joints are lower than your knees.
If they’re not below this level, it’s only a partial squat.
Step 4. Hold
For this next step, you should keep your arms in front of you and make sure that your pelvic region is in alignment with your toes.
Then push back your hips before keeping your core tight and your glutes squeezed.
Try holding this pose for three seconds!
Step 5. Getting Back Up
After three seconds, exhale and get back up slowly. Again, you should keep the weight on your heels while your chest is up.
Do this while squeezing your glutes and pushing your hips forward.
Step 6. Repeat
Repeat all these stages again.
Before each squat remember to inhale. When you go down to the squat position, make sure you hold for three seconds before coming back up.
While squatting you should be slow and patient. It’s not rocket science and it’s very easy to learn.
Once you have mastered it, you can move on and learn these advanced levels of squats.
