Sunday Herald Sun - Body and Soul - - HEALTH DEBATE -

Stand with your feet shoul­der-width apart and squat down as though you are sit­ting on an imag­i­nary chair. Brace your abs, keep your back al­most ver­ti­cal and your gaze on the hori­zon, and wig­gle your toes so your weight trans­fers to your heels. Slowly lower as far down as you can. Stop if you feel any knee pain. If you can get to the point where your ham­strings touch your calves, you’re a squat ex­pert. Prac­tise un­til you can do this with­out pain. Slowly rise back to the start­ing po­si­tion. Re­peat with­out rest­ing at the top.

Reps: 12 to 20.
