1. Basic squat
It’s simple. Stand up straight with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Squat as deep as possible, trying not to bring your knees over your feet. Make sure to keep your body weight on your heels, so you’re sure to tense your buttocks.
2. Squat with a kick back
Doing a basic squat, do a kick every time you get up from the squat. Alternate legs each time.
3. Sumo squat and its variation
Stand up straight with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Squat as low as possible, keep your back straight, and do not bring your knees behind your feet.
To do a variation, perform a sumo squat, lower your arms to the floor when in the squat, then slowly get up and lift your arms, outlining a circle. When you get up from the squat, raise your body onto your heels.
4. Squats with twists
Stand up straight with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and put your hands behind your head. Perform a basic squat. Getting up from a squat, lift your right leg, bend your knee, and stretch to the right elbow as if you want to touch it and touch your knee with your elbow. Repeat on the other side.
5. Jump squat
Perform a basic squat. As soon as you get out of the squat, jump up.
6. Narrow squat
Stand up straight with your legs together and squat as low as you can.
7. Squat with an oblique backward lunge
Stand up straight. Put your left leg behind your right leg and do a squat. Then step with your left foot to the side, move the right leg behind your left, and squat again.
8. Squat in the lunge
Stand up straight. Put your right leg behind you and squat. Then repeat on the other side.
9. Squat and step to the side
Do a basic squat and stay in the position when your bottom is lowered. Move your left foot to the side and touch the floor with your toe. Repeat on the other side.
10. Jump squats brought to a close stance
Stand straight with your legs together. During the jump, spread your legs apart (slightly wider than shoulder-width) and lower back down into a squat. As you rise, bring your feet together.
