For the past several weeks, Eye On Wellness has been concentrating on stress/ How to deal with it, how to beat it, etc.

This week we’re going back to basics—the physical aspects>.

Let’s start with leg exercises—the Double Leg Squat.  

Of the Knee, Hip, and ankle extension exercises, the double leg squat is most commonly used by experienced runners and cyclists.

Start with standing with the barbell on your shoulder with a fairly light barbell on your shoulder.

Your feet should be shoulder-width apart, and pointing straight ahead.

Keep your back straight, head up and eyes straight ahead.

Squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor ( You can use a stool or a chair if you’re a beginner.

Once your butt touches, the parallel position of the seat, stand back up.

Keep your knees straight, and your feet pointed straight ahead as you go through the motion.

Return to the start position with your back straight and eyes looking straight ahead.
