Virtual Fitness: Basic Squat Exercise

Basic Squat Exercise


The Squat Exercise is performed indoors or outdoors. You need very little space to do this basic strength training exercise.

Modifications: The lower you squat, the harder it is. If you’re new to this exercise, squat down at a higher angle. Suggested Sets and Repetitions: Do 3 sets of 8 to 10 repetitions. If you can’t do that many, cut back to 1 or 2 sets of 5 to 8 repetitions, or do whatever you can manage.

Benefits: Squatting is a strength training exercise that improves your Hamstrings, Quadriceps, and Gluteals.

Benefits For Women: Squatting tones your thighs. You’ll look better in stretch pants.


As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider
