Hold a pair of dumbbells and stand on a surface that's elevated a few inches (it could be a box or two weight plates stacked on top of each other, as shown here). Keeping your lower back in its natural arch, crouch down, resting the weights on the floor . Extend your hips and knees to stand straight up with the dumbbells . Reverse the motion to return to the starting position. That's one rep.
