Things to Keep in Mind
Make sure to warm up (5-10 minutes of cycling) in order to relax your muscles and ligaments before you start squatting.

Stretching and cooling down is equally important once you finish.

Don't forget to work on your hamstrings as well. Squats focus primarily on the quadriceps, therefore for a fuller and a well-rounded workout include a few reps of leg curls, stiff-leg dead-lift, lying leg curl and standing leg curl in combination with squats.

When you squat at a slow speed it helps build endurance and stamina. In case you are looking for a cardio effect, amp up your pace.
