The squat is one of the best ways to strengthen your butt and legs and you probably do it multiple times a day without even realizing it, says Sara Haley, Reebok Global Master Trainer. For the biggest boost, make sure you’re using correct form.
1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, back straight and knees slightly bent.
2. Shift your weight to your heels and lowly lower your body as if you were sitting in a chair, rolling your shoulders back and keeping your chest lifted (think of squeezing your shoulder blades together).
3. When your thighs are parallel to the floor, pause, then return to the starting position. Do at least 20 repetitions.
