I’ve heard you guys say many times, “we squat SO MUCH!” And while I know you’re not complaining, you probably wonder why we squat as much as we do. Let me tell you why.
1- Squats build muscle everywhere. Not only do squats work your legs, but they create an ideal environment for all over muscle growth. Certain hormones (that encourage all over muscle growth) are released while working such large muscle groups, such as the legs.
2- Squats build muscle and muscle burns FAT!
3- Squats are the most functional and natural of movements, and in order to encourage health and mobility, the squat should be mastered and maintained. Ever watch a baby squat down to look at something? It’s the perfect movement that we lose with age.
4- Squats prevent injuries by strengthening joints and encouraging mobility.
5- Squats are CHEAP and can be done anywhere in many different forms. So today, let’s work on a few different versions of the squat.
