Squat, quads,and hamstrings

The gluteal maximus muscles (also known as the butt), your quads (the thigh muscles in front that have four heads hence the name) and your hamstrings (thigh muscles in back) are critical to good posture and preventing low back pain especially when sitting for long periods of time.

Here I am doing a squat on an unstable surface to strengthen the muscles supporting the knees. The quad exercises and hamstrings should be balanced with 12 reps each and then roll the muscles.
