Back Squat - Leg Exercise

With palms facing forward, take the weight off the rack.

The bar must be resting on the muscle on the back of your shoulders and not on your neck.

Descend, keeping your back straight until your thighs are close to parallel with the floor.

Then push this same weight back up.

Remember to distribute the weight on your upper thighs and the heels or balls of your feet, neither your toes nor your knees.
