Squats are very much beneficial to the body. Additionally, you can do these without using any equipment or machine. The very essential factors that you have to remember in doing squats are your form and posture.

Slowly execute your squat by positioning your body as if you are seating in a chair. While aiming for this position, make sure your feet are planted flatly on the ground. It is very much advisable for you to do squats for 8 to 12 repetitions.

Once your back is already parallel with the floor, bring back again your back and knees upand back to initial position. Repeat this for 8 to 12 times.
