Technique - Start by bending your knees keeping your back straight when picking up the dumbbells. Grip the dumbbells in a normal fashion as it's not that important with this exercise. When ready stand up and place your feet shoulder width apart and turn your feet so that your they point in a diagonal direction. Hold the dumbbells to your side with your palms facing towards you. Inhale as you squat down keeping your back straight in a slow, controlled manner until your thighs are in a horizontal position. Hold this position for a count of 1. Exhale as you press back to the starting position again keeping your back straight. Do not allow your knees to fully lockout before starting the next rep as this will maintain pressure on the muscles being used and increase the overall benefits of the exercise.
