People ask me why I squat every day. The answer is simple: it’s the most important human movement. Any sport you’ll play, any activity you’ll ever do, requires a squat motion. Now, a simple move you can do to practice a squat is an air squat.

It’s simple to execute. Your feet are going to be roughly shoulder width apart. From there, with a proud chest and an upright body, you can sit down like you’re sitting into a chair, reaching your butt towards the back wall. You’re going to go to a parallel depth, and that means the top of the thighs are going to be parallel to the ground. From there, you’re going to thrust the hips forward and stand up.

A couple of key point to remember for the air squat:

  1. Always hit that parallel depth. In fact, it’s important to go even a little bit below parallel than not go low enough.
  2. Always maintain that proud chest and keep your body upright.
