As a personal trainer, one movement that people seem to have the most difficulty  mastering is one we do everyday.  Being able to squat well is an important functional exercise to master, because we need to do it to stand up from a seated position or bend to lift something from the ground.  Seniors in particular seem to have trouble squatting well because the aches and pains from living life, can inhibit proper movement.  While there are many exercises that I would say are important to do well, the squat is the most important exercise for seniors to master.
