Outsmarting Heart Disease
The Squat
The first exercise is the Squat. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Bend yourknees as if you are going to sit in a chair and reach back with your buttocks whilekeeping your chest lifted. This may feel a bit awkward, but if you keep your back-side reaching back, your knees will be better protected against undue stress. You donot want your knees to protrude past your toes. Bend only as far as you can safely and with good form. Return to the start position. Do two sets of 
repetitions. Thisexercise strengthens the most important muscle in your legs, the quadriceps. Thequadriceps is the big muscle in the front of your thigh that is responsible for lifting your body up and lowering it down. A strong quadriceps muscle can help keep yourknees and hips healthy, as well as prevent lower-back pain by allowing you to bendfrom your knees when you need to lift anything.
