Fitness tip: Squat
The squat is an excellent functional movement that will build useful strength transferable to sport and every day life.The squat will hit all the major muscle groups of your lower body, hips, glutes, quads, and hamstrings, making it a compound exercise. As it is such a big lift, you will gain some serious lower body strength and muscle and you will also burn a lot of calories. Whether it be a Back Squat, Front squat (which is what I’m doing in the photo) or even a Goblet Squat.
Personally I think squats should always be in a strength training workout program. So if you are used to just sitting on the machines to do your leg exercises, it’s time to stand up and get functional and squat.
