Exercise IX: Squat

Sets: 2 Reps: 8 Rest: 75 Seconds

Set up a barbell on the supports of a squat rack. Step underneath the bar, squeeze your shoulder blades together, and let the bar touch your upper traps. Grab the bar with your hands about 8 to 12 inches wider than shoulder width. Nudge the bar off the rack, take one step backward, and stand with your feet just a bit wider than shoulder-width apart and toes turned slightly outward [1]. Take a deep breath, and bend your hips and knees, lowering your body as far as you can [2]. Extend your hips to return to the starting position. That's one rep.
