These squats make use of your body weight as resistance. Start the exercise by standing with your feet a little more than shoulder or hip width apart, with your toes slightly pointed out. Your knees will move in the directions where your toes are pointed. If you are just starting to do this workout, imagine or use a chair to guide you. Drop your hips and bend at your knees as you lower your buttocks. You can raise your arms up to shoulder level to help keep your balance. Remember to stick out your chest, tighten your abdomen, and keep your back straight. Go back to the starting position. Do 10 to 15 repetitions for each set. Listen to your body to determine how much you can do.
