Supported squat

Make sure that you are warm before performing this exercise.

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart and hold a fixed surface such as a kitchen worktop.
  • Bend your knees and push your bottom backwards, as though you were going to sit down.
  • Try to keep your knees above your toes.
  • Come back up to the start position.
  • If you feel steady, perform without holding on.

Try and aim to do 10 supported squats every other day.
