Cocorinha squat

Movement

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees and drop down into a squat position with your hands in front of you, crossed at die wrist. Stand up again, bringing your arms above your head and reaching toward the sky for a full stretch of the spine. Repeat. Shoot for 175 in 5 minutes, 350 in 10 minutes, or 500 in 15 minutes.

Breathing

Exhale on the way down. Inhale on the way up. In all exercises try nasal breathing, or if you find that difficult, inhale through die nose and exhale through die moudi.

Pointers

Let your hips drop as low as possible. Try not to bend forward on the way down, or on the way up. Keep your head upright and aligned with your spine. If your ankles are not flexible enough to fully squat with your heels 011 the floor, you can raise your heels and squat on your toes.
