Position yourself for this exercise by standing upright, holding a dumbbell in each of your hands (your palms should be facing the side of your thighs). Your feet should be at approximately a shoulder widths distance from one another with your toes pointed slightly out. Ensure that your head is kept up and that your back is straight not just in this starting position, but also throughout the entirety of this exercise. In order to execute the movement, slowly lower your body by bending your knees and sitting back with your hips. Continue this descent until your upper thighs form a ninety-degree angle with the floor. Once you reach this point of the descent, raise your body back up to the starting position by pushing into the floor with both of your heels (straightening your legs and extending your hips). Repeat for the prescribed number of repetitions.
