Movement:

 

Stand tall, maintaining a straight spine by squeezing your belly button in tightly. Keeping good quality posture.

Squat down slowly , keeping pressure against the back pads as you begin to lower.

Stop when you reach a depth that feels comfortable and within your bodies range of motion.

Note: As you stand, drive extra pressure through your heels than your toes.

Repeat desired amount of reps.
