Overview

The squat hold is an exercise that targets the quadriceps muscles. To do a squat hold, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes turned out slightly. Hold a weight in each hand and bend your knees to lower yourself into a squat position. Keep your back straight and your core engaged. Hold the position for as long as you can, then slowly return to standing. The squat hold is a challenging exercise, but it is an effective way to build strength and size in your quadriceps.
