Sara Hauber demonstrates how to correctly do a squat.

Squats are great for your legs, abs, and butt–if you do them correctly.

The squat

You’ve heard the word. You’ve seen people at the gym (mostly men), loading a heavy bar on their shoulders and grunting as they do various versions of the exercise. And you’ve read that squats are a great way to shape your legs and butt.

But do you really know how to do a squat so that it helps your physique and function without hurting your back, knees, or neck? Most people do the squat incorrectly (I have been watching them for years at the various gyms at which I have trained), and it actually makes my body hurt to see what they are doing to theirs.

In my newest YouTube video, I give you all the tips and visuals you need to do squats correctly the rest of your life–and keep cartilage in your knees, back, and neck, too. When you do these in conjunction with the core exercise I taught you previously, you’ll get even more out of your workout.

Have fun!
