START
FINISH
1.  Stand up straight while holding a dumbbell on each hand (palms facing the side of your legs).

2.  Position your legs using a shoulder width medium stance with the toes slightly pointed out. Keep
    your head up at all times as looking down will get you off balance and also maintain a straight back.
   This will be your starting position. Note: For the purposes of this discussion we will use the medium
   stance described above which targets overall development; however you can choose any of the
   three stances discussed in the foot stances section.

3.  Begin to slowly lower your torso by bending the knees as you maintain a straight posture with the
    head up. Continue down until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Tip: If you performed the exercise
    correctly, the front of the knees should make an imaginary straight line with the toes that is
    perpendicular to the front. If your knees are past that imaginary line (if they are past your toes) then
    you are placing undue stress on the knee and the exercise has been performed incorrectly.

4.  Begin to raise your torso as you exhale by pushing the floor with the heel of your foot mainly as you
     straighten the legs again and go back to the starting position.

5.  Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.

Caution: Be cautious with the weight used; in case of doubt, use less weight rather than more. The squat is a very safe exercise but only if performed properly. You may use wrist wraps for this exercise.

Variations: As previously mentioned, there are various stances that can be used depending on what you want to emphasize.

You can also use a barbell for this exercise.
