A variation of the basic exercise for complex body development.
This suits those who have back issues as there is less load on the lower part of the spine.
Stand up straight with your feet placed significantly wider than shoulder width apart. The dumbbell should stand (not lie!) between your legs.
As you inhale, slowly lower yourself keeping your back straight and grasp the dumbbell with both hands.
As you exhale, slowly rise up, straightening your knees at first.
Do not pause at the top, immediately go on to the next rep.
Always start doing this exercise with light weights.
During the squat, your knees should be pointed in the same direction as your feet.
Do not hold your breath, it increases blood pressure.
Do not throw your head back and do not bend your back.
