Barbell Squat Thigh Exercise
Start with the barbell on your shoulders as shown in the illustration. The squat position is shown at its proper angle in the next illustration. There should be a definite pause at the positions shown. Do not bounce up and down, but make a regular momentary pause at the top and the bottom. Special attention should be given to the breathing for this exercise This is the KEY to the exercise. Keep your chest high and INHALE deeply as you squat down. EXHALE as you rise. Keep your feet about shoulder's width apart. For better balance keep your eyes fixed at some object that is eye level ( if you look at the ground you will have a tendency to tip forward ). Do not remove the barbell from your shoulder until you have completed the required repetitions.
