Today we're moving on to squats in the Lean Girls Fitness Back to Basics Challenge - starting with 10 and working up to 50. Don't worry if you can't do them all in a row - feel free to break them up into smaller sets. Basic bodyweight squats are great for toning that booty! To do a body weight squat, stand with your legs slightly wider than hip-width with your feet slightly angled out. Keep your knees in line with your feet as you squat. Lower yourself by moving your butt backwards, and then stand. You can raise your arms in front of you like I show in the video, or you can let them hang loose at your side. Just don't place them on your legs or use your hands to push yourself up.
