Here is how to nail the perfect squats in easy steps:

1. Warm up

2. Stand with your feet just over shoulder width apart

3. Keep your back in a neutral position, and keep your knees centered over your feet

4. Slowly bend your knees, hips and ankles, lowering until you reach a 90-degree angle

5. Return to starting position repeat this 15-20 times, for 2-3 sets for beginners (do this two or three times a week)

6. Breathe in as you lower, breathe out as you return to starting position
