Instructions

Start with your feet shoulder width apart and turned out slightly. Keep your core muscles tight throughout the entire movement. Keep your weight in your heels, bend at the knees and hip joint to lower the body towards the floor. Exaggerate the motion by sticking your butt out as if you were going to sit in a chair. Keep your chest tilted up and your back flat throughout the squatting motion. As you drop, try to get your thighs as close to parallel to the floor as you can without letting your knees go over your toes, or rock in towards each other. Come back up to a standing position by pressing with your heels. Continue this motion until you have completed all repetitions.

Purpose of the exercise

This toning move for the lower body is notoriously effective in firming and toning the buttocks and thighs. These are a great addition to a home workout routine because they burn a significant amount of calories, provide unmatched lower body toning results, and require no equipment.
