Y-Squats

Stand with your legs a comfortable distance apart.  Extend your arms overhead, palms facing forward as if in a y shape (you can hold a towel if desired).  bend at your knees, squatting down until your thighs are parallel to the ground.  keep your arms extended overhead or holding the towel overhead the entire time.  Press up from your heels to return to starting position.  Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.  Focus on keeping your weight in your heels and letting your thighs do the work.
