Hi I’m Manny Castro, exercise physiologist. In this next exercise called the squat, again we are going to use the resistance tubing with the hand grips attached. Basically what we want to do is and I would like to talk to you a little about form on the squat because it is a difficult exercise. Now you can do this to begin without the resistance tubing and the way that you would do that is basically you could just place your hands behind your neck or behind your head, and cross your fingers, position your feet about shoulder width apart or a little wider than shoulder width and your toes slightly pointing out. Now what you want to do is rotate the hip out as you squat down or stick your butt out so your knees don’t go past your toes. Okay. On the way up what you want to do is squeeze your buttocks together and you want to go down to about parallel to the floor. Now if you can’t go that low to begin with, that is okay. Start with something that is about half the depth of that. Remember to squeeze on the way up. Now if you wanted to use the resistance tubing it is basically the same movement and same technique. All you are going to do is position your tubing and step on your tubing, same position with the toes, you are going to hold the tubing up like this with your palms facing forward and you are going to squat. About 3 sets and 15 to 20 repetitions is all you need.
