[separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”1″ bottom_margin=”1″ sep_color=”” icon=”” width=””]The squat is one of the most elemental exercises of the leg-workout. By lowering the buttocks backward the knee joint (patella) is relieved and the musculature gets specifically trained.

  1. Standing on both legs, the upper body is lightly leaned back. The arms are long and the Suspension Trainer is under tension.
  2. The body is moved backward by flexing both legs up to the desired angle.
  3. In the final position the arms are stretched and the upper body is upright and eventually lightly leaned forward. The weight is on the heels. The knee joints are strongly flexed. The heels are completely placed on the bottom.
  4. The body is straightened up again by the power of the legs. The legs are stretched in the hip and the knee joint, the back remains upright.
