NOTE: Choose a light weight and use the same load on every exercise. Perform each lift one after the other without rest in between. Complete 12 reps per move. Rest as needed at the end, and then repeat for five total sets.
Stand with your feet a bit wider than shoulder-width apart and your toes turned slightly outward. Bend your hips back and then your knees (push them outward as you go down) to lower your body as far as you can. Try to get your thighs at least parallel to the floor. Keep your posture as upright as possible and maintain the normal arch in your lower back.
