With a focus on lower body, the barbell squat is a compound movement that engages the entire body with emphasis on building strength and is a great way to start a workout. For building strength, you can lower the repetitions while increasing the weight.
Quads, Glutes, Hamstrings
Place a barbell in a rack just below shoulder-height
Reach underneath the bar and put the bar behind the neck while gripping the bar with hands wider than shoulder width
Step away with the bar, look forward and keep the back straight
Lower the barbell until your hip and knee are at the same level.
Now press down and bring the barbell back to the starting position.
Repeat movement as needed, step back to the rack and place the barbell on the rack
Keep feet straight and aligned
Don't go all the way to the ground with the movement!
Keep chest out without extending away the back
Spread the knees but not overdo it
