Athletic Performance in Clovis is helping you get in shape this summer. Co-owner Cameron Worrell shows us proper squat technique in the first part of our summer fitness tip series.

GEORGE TAKATA: all right, it's the first of our summer fitness tip series at athletic performance in clovis - i'm here with co-owner and good friend of mine cameron worrell - 6 years in the nfl with the bears and dolphins - and we're also joined by lindsey duvalli - former clovis cougar and she's going to be playing soccer at unlv - and cam's going to demonstrate proper squat technique with lindsey so take it away.

CAMERON WORRELL: all right - one of the biggest problems we see with people who do squats on a regular basis is they initiate by pushing their knees forward - what lindsey's going to show us here is the proper squat technique - she's going to initiate by pushing her hips backwards - she's going to push her knees out so she's going to activate her glutes and hamstrings to do most of the work - when we see athletes or people in general do a squat by initiating with pushing their knees forward, they're using their quads to do most of the work - here we see lindsey pushing her hips back - driving her knees out so she's using glutes and hamstrings to power the squat which is the proper squat technique we're looking for.

GEORGE TAKATA: all right great - thanks cam, thanks lindsey - what are we talking about next week?

CAMERON WORRELL: next week we're going to talk about a really tough ab exercise - they're called rocker sit-ups - really good to tighten the core and help alleviate lower back pain.

GEORGE TAKATA: location of the gym and your website?

CAMERON WORRELL: 340 clovis avenue, www.apfresno.com.

GEORGE TAKATA: thanks guys - and that's your ksee 24 sunrise athletic performance fitness tip of the week.
