Exercise Tip 3: Squats

Squats work your quadriceps and your gluteus maximus, two of the largest muscle groups in your body. Exercising the larger muscle groups burns more calories, so you get a greater return on your investment. Squats also work your balance, exercising your brain.

Place your feet shoulder width apart and descend slowly, keeping your back upright. If you have problems maintaining an upright posture, start doing squats with your back against a wall. Trust me, it won't make the exercise any easier.

Do 3 sets of 10 or more repetitions, increasing repetitions each day or week as they get easier.
