Power squat

Loading the player...

Position
Stand with your feet as wide as your hips, pointing your toes slightly outwards.

The exercise
Aim to lower yourself into a squat, keeping your hips in line with your knees.
Clasp your hands and, keeping your arms straight, lift them level with your face.
Then do small squats.

Think about
Spread your feet slightly wider if you find it difficult to get down into the right position.

Useful points
Keeping the arms straight improves the connection to the torso as well as the thighs, hips and seat.
The exercise becomes more difficult if you unclasp your hands.
