Squat/Body Squat

Squats are the foundation to building strong legs. Although the movement seems simple, it’s more complex than how the average person practices them. Being a foundational piece to your workout structure, it’s key that you are activating the correct muscles to do them correctly.

This movement can be as simple or complex as you want to make it. For form’s sake, I’m going to go through a basic body squat. Start with your feet about hip distance apart. Keeping your posture tall, sit down and back into your heels. Once you feel the maximum amount of stretch in your glutes, squeeze them as you drive through your heels and return to standing.
