Leg Exercises - Static Squat with Dumbbells
Primary Muscles: Gluteus Maximus, Quadriceps
Secondary Muscles: Biceps Femoris, Semitendinosis, Semimembranosis
  1. Hold the dumbbells with palms facing in towards the body. Stand with one foot directly in front of the other by just a little more than a step width apart and both feet pointing straight ahead. The rear foot should just have its big toe on the ground.
  2. Keep your front knee over your ankle and bend your hip until your knee reaches 90-110 degrees of flexion. Keep your back straight and chest up.
  3. Push through your heel back to the point where your knee is soft and leg is extended.

Helpful Hints:
Keep focused on having your weight in your front leg and not your back leg. Your back leg should be helping you keep your balance only.
