Squat exercises are great for a total lower body workout.
They effectively work most of the major muscle groups of the butt, hips and thighs. They can be done almost anywhere and with or without the use of weights or equipment.
Squat exercises thoroughly work the quads, hamstrings and calf muscles, which helps to tone and strengthen the legs.
Doing squats gives the glutes a powerful workout, helping to tighten and lift the butt. To increase this effect, give your glutes an extra squeeze when returning to a standing position.
Squats work the core muscles. Abdominal and back muscles are needed to keep balance during the movement. The result is a tighter, flatter abdomen and a stronger lower back. Make a conscious effort to hold in your abdominal muscles while squatting down to increase this effect.
