This multi-joint exercise primarily strengthens the muscles of your lower body, such as glutes and quads, but the focus is on the inner thigh.
- Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and toes pointing out.
- Keeping weight primarily through your heels, slowly lower your body as if sitting on a chair. Keep your back straight, your chest out and your knees pointed in the same direction as your toes.
- Descend until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Don't move your knees past your toes.
- Slowly push up from your heels, extending your legs and squeezing your glutes. Straighten your legs.
