Did you know that working the legs takes a strain of the heart, it’s like going for a quick run. So time to incorporate squats into your daily routines and get your heart pumped!
Stick to: 2-3 times a day (10-20 repeats each time)
- Put feet shoulder-width apart.
- Point your feet (and knees) slightly outward.
- Bend your knees then straighten again (never let your knees overshoot the feet).
- In time you will be able to lower yourself so your thighs are parallel with the floor.
TIP: if you have knee problems, squats are a must – just take it easy and go half-way.
Stick to it for a couple of weeks – do you notice how quickly it gets easier?
