Easy Home Exercise: Prisoner Squats

This exercise uses over 240 muscles without resistance. When performed correctly throughout the kinetic chain, it is one of the best exercises for the lower body. To perform this exercise correctly:
1. Start with feet shoulder width apart, toes pointing slightly angled out
2. Make sure hips, knees and toes are aligned correctly throughout the range of motion
3. Hands are placed behind the head to make sure that the chest is up and shoulders are back throughout the range of motion
4. As you lower your center of gravity, the glutes push back as if you were sitting down, bending at the hips and knees
5. Make sure the knees do not pass over the toes, and stay on your heels
6. Also make sure that you do not lean too forward, which can cause strain on the lower back
7. Remember to keep the core tight throughout the range of motion
