Deep Squat

Regularly incorporating the squat pose stretch into your fitness routine can help improve your overall mobility and make movements like squatting, lunging, and bending more comfortable and efficient.

Starting position

  1. Begin by standing with your feet hip-width apart and your toes pointing slightly outward.
  2. Keep your back straight, shoulders relaxed, and arms by your sides.


  1. Slowly lower your body into a squat position by bending your knees and pushing your hips back and down. Try to keep your heels on the ground as you descend.
  2. Lower yourself as much as your flexibility allows. Ideally, you want to achieve a deep squat with your buttocks close to or resting on your heels and your thighs parallel to the ground. If you can't go all the way down at first, that's okay. Gradually work on increasing your depth over time.
  3. Once you're in the deep squat position, hold it for the set time, or as long as you're comfortable.
  1. It's okay if your heels come up slightly, especially if you're working on your flexibility.
  2. While in the squat, focus on taking deep breaths to help relax and stretch the muscles.
  3. Left chest up and forward
