With the dumbbell is by your side, initiate the squat by flexing your hips first and then your knees. Come down as far as comfortable. Squeeze your glutes to extend your hips and come back into a standing position. Your core should be engaged the whole time. Do not flex your back as you come down, your trunk should remain stiff and straight as this reduces the risk of injury during this exercise
