Static Squat

The static method can be used for a number of different exercises, however always make sure that you warm up and stretch the muscles you're about to use.

Take care when finishing your static exercise for the quads, especially if you have been low down for a while, as the contraction of the muscles, will reduce the blood flow to your brain, and can cause you to feel dizzy or light headed for a few seconds.
 
If you feel dizzy, stop what you’re doing, and aim to sit or lie down straight away, shaking your legs to aid blood flow, ideally with your feet raised.

Stretch and Warm Up before you commence any exercise and aim to finish with some good stretching to let your body and mind recover.
