They improve the flexibility of your lower back, tone your buttocks, thighs and calves muscles.

Here’s how you perfect a body weight squat…[/cs_text][cs_text][/cs_text][cs_text]

Body Weight Squats – Step-By-Step

  • Stand straight with shoulder width distance between your feet. Your knees should point the direction your big toe is facing.
  • Stick out your buttocks slightly and lower yourself in a controlled motion by bending your knees. Keep your head straight and look forward throughout the exercise.
  • Lower yourself until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Return to starting position.
  • Repeat.


Body Weight Squats – Mistakes To Avoid

  • The wider the gap between your feet, the easier this exercise is. So start with wider gaps (if necessary) and decrease it gradually.
  • Knees normally face outwards. Bring them slightly in so that they face the direction your big toe is facing.
  • While lowering yourself, the gravity helps the movement which beats the purpose of workout. Lower yourself in a controlled motion.

Do them right, and squats will love you back! :D[/cs_text][cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
