Why do SQUATS?

  • Help your leg muscles work more efficiently making daily activity easier to perform
  • Improve mobility and balance
  • Prevent injuries
  • Improve your overall performance, make you faster.
  • Tone your whole body

Squats are considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the legs and buttocks, as well as developing core strength.

Correct Squat Technique:

Stand in front of a knee-height box, feet shoulder width apart. Squat as though you are about to sit on the chair. Keep your gaze on the horizon chest open, knees in line with your second toe and your weight in your heels. Lightly touch the box, torso tilted no more than 45 degrees. Push through your heels to rise.
