7 Reasons You Should Be Squatting
There is no better feeling than heavy weight on your back and squatting.
Along with feeling amazing squats can change your body more than any other lift in my opinion.
Here Are 7 Reasons You Should Be Squatting:
#1. Squats are known as a leg exercise, but they promote body-wide muscle building, full body strength, fat loss and more. Most women think squats are just a lower body exercise. But if they are done properly squats work your entire body. Your legs, your core, your hips, your back, your glutes and more.
Learn to use full body tension and use your whole body when you squat.
#2. Squats are one of the best functional exercises out there, promoting mobility and balance and helping you complete real-world activities with ease. Improve overall health and performance with a stronger squat.
#3. Squats Burn Fat. A stronger squat helps you to burn more calories and burn more fat, as one of the most time-efficient ways to burn more calories continually is by developing more muscle. Try a set of high rep squats and watch your heart rate go through the roof.
#4. Squats improve certain important hormones. A stronger squat leads to increased hormone profiles that builds more muscle, burn fat, improve energy and more.
#5. Squats Improve Sports Performance. A stronger squat will improve performance in any other sports. Squatting is a fundamental strength movement that is important for every sport.
#6. Squats Work The Entire Body. Most women think squats work the legs, they do that, but they also work the upper back, lower back, core, hips, grip strength and more.
#7. Squats Build A Booty. Let’s be honest, everyone likes a muscle bum and a stronger squat will help you build that booty :).
If you are lifting weights squats and squat variations should be the backbone of your training.
By the way if you want a stronger squat, and my stronger I mean adding, 10, 20, even 30 pounds to your Squat in only 6 weeks.
