    Muscles worked: Quadriceps

    Instructions:
    Step up to the bar, bring your arms under the bar, keeping your elbows high, cross your arms and grasp the bar. Next lift the weight and twist the bar back towards you to clear the hooks of their holes. Place your feet shoulder width apart. Keeping your knees slightly bent, your back straight and head up, lower yourself till your thighs are just below parallel to the floor. Push yourself back to the starting position and repeat.
    Note: Placing a low block under your heels will help maintain your balance.
    Dont's:
    Don't let your back round and your head look down. Don't let your elbows lower, keep them high to keep the weight from rolling forward. Keep your back straight as possible and use a slow controlled motion.

    Alternate exercises: Barbell squats, Dumbbell squats,Smithmachine squats
