Squats are the best exercise for your whole body. Your legs bend and straighten to move weights, while also engaging many other muscles at once; including those in your abs and lower back which stabilize you trunk so it doesn’t collapse on itself during lifts.

The Squat is considered by many as the king of all exercises. It works more muscles, with heavier weight, than popular exercises like Bench Press and it also provides overall strength and muscle gains quickly due to its effectiveness. Proper form for a squat includes not only going as low into your squats as possible without losing balance but keeping proper posture during this exercise. Keep knees aligned on top of feet while lowering down between them so that hips are below knee level when at parallel height or lower. Your back should remain neutral (no rounding) throughout the course of the movement in order to avoid injury-causing problems such as spinal disc herniations or damage from overuse by placing too much pressure onto our joints through improper positioning/movement patterns; pushing outwards against thighs can help. Remember, train don’t strain – use weights that are not too heavy to avoid injuries.
