The bodyweight squat is fundamental body movement that strengthens and tones the lower body. This functional exercise can be performed virtually anywhere with no equipment and little space, and because it's such a basic movement the benefits will carry over into everyday life. Bauerfeind’s Sports Compression Knee Support provides support and compression for better performance during workouts.
- Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, toes slightly turned out, arms at your sides, palms in.
- Engage your core and keep your chest lifted and back flat as you shift your weight into your heels, push your hips back, and bend your knees to lower into a squat. Bend your elbows and bring your palms together in front of your chest. (You can also just hold your hands in front of your chest the entire time.)
- Drive through your heels to stand and squeeze your glutes at the top for 1 rep.
