The squat thigh exercise is a versatile exercise that can be performed with dumbbells, barbells or without additional weight. It is a multi- joint exercise that strengthens the glutes, quadriceps and hamstrings.

  • With your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart and your toes slightly pointed out, bend your knees and lower yourself until your upper thighs are just lower than parallel with the ground while keeping your head up and l straight (Inhale).
  • Maintaining your upper bod, in the same upright stable position, push yourself back up to the starting position (Exhale). Make sure that your shoulders remain in line with the feet throughout the entire movement so as to limit the stress on the lower back.
  • Do 8-12 repetitions.

Thigh Exercise Dumbbell Squats:

  • Stand with a dumbbell in each hand, feet shoulder width apart, knees s bent.
  • Slowly lower your body so that your thighs are parallel to the floor-always keep in mind not to let your knees reach out past your toes. One way to help avoid this is to reach back with your butt while lowering your body.
