How to do squats

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and toes pointing slightly outwards. Bend your knees and drive your hips backwards and sit in the squat position. Make sure your heels and toes are on the ground, your chest up and your back straight. Keep your arms straight in front of you. Hold this pose for a few seconds, and then get back up so that your legs are straight. Repeat this for a few more times.
