Do you want to hear a fitness pro talk? Don’t just ask them whether or not you should be doing squats. That question alone will evoke an exuberant “YESSS!!!!!!” Instead, ask them “how” and “why.” Fitness pros light up likes kids when the ice cream truck rolls up when they get to talk about one the most effective exercises around!
The squat is one of the most popular exercises in any workout. It works multiple muscles throughout the body and has several variations. You can add weight to the squat to make it harder or even add plyometrics to the mix to increase your heart rate and burn more calories.
