How to do the perfect squat:

  • Sit back as if you’re are about to sit in a chair
  • Keep your shins vertical and your knees tracking over your toes, don’t let your knees cave inwards towards each other
  • Keep your chest up and your head looking forward
  • You should aim to get your hips and knees level whilst squatting, but make sure you do not round your back.
