Weighted Squat - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Set two flat benches on the floor shoulder width away from each other.

Step 2

Wear a weighted belt on your waist according to your preference.

Step 3

Stand on top of the benches with your toes pointing out. This is your starting position.

Step 4

Squat down by bending your hips and knees at the same time. Keep your back straight, head looking forward, and chest up as you descend. Inhale as you do this. Continue until your knees are bent at slightly less than 90 degrees. Ensure that your knees don’t go beyond your toes to avoid putting too much stress on it.

Step 5

Pause for a moment then slowly go back to your starting position by pushing the floor of the flat bench with the ball of your foot. Exhale as you do this.

Step 6

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
