How To Squat

Hi Healthy Living Junkies!  One of the best exercises you can do to hit almost every major body part is squat.  Squats are great for tighten and toning your legs including hamstring, quads, and glutes, but did you know it also tightens your core and your back?   When you do squats correctly, you engage almost every part of your body.  Squats build lean muscles, which helps boost your metabolism and burn more calories.  When you build lean muscles, you increase your metabolism because muscles require more energy to sustain, therefore, using more calories. So how do you do a proper squat?  Simple.  Squat like a baby.

 

How to Squat Correctly

1.  Head in neutral position

2.  Tighten your torso

3. Keep your knees behind your toes

4.  Feet should be about shoulder width apart

5.  Keep your weight towards your heels

6. Stick your hips out like you are sitting in a chair.
