6 Reasons Why Squats are So Necessary

Say Hello to the King of Exercises

You may take these two statements as gospel.

Whatever you do, never ever skip legs day!

Whatever else you do or don’t, never skip squats!

Squatting is perhaps the most beneficial exercise of them all. Here are some reasons why you should be performing squats frequently and with high intensity.

  1. Muscle Growth: 

    Squats obviously help to build and tone your leg muscles, but they also create an anabolic environment, which promotes body-wide muscle building.

    When done properly, they release human growth hormones which promote muscle growth in the entire body. 

  2. Fat Burn: 

    The best way to blast away fat is to build more muscle. For every pound of additional muscle you gain, your body will burn an additional 50-70 calories per day. Squats performed at high reps and medium weight accomplish this perfectly.

  3. Mobility and Balance: 

    Strong legs are crucial for staying mobile as you get older, and squats are phenomenal for increasing leg strength. They also work out your core, stabilizing muscles, which will help you to maintain balance.

  4. Prevent Injuries: 

    Most athletic injuries involve weak stabilizer muscles, ligaments and connective tissues, which squats help strengthen. They also help prevent injury by improving your flexibility (squats improve the range of motion in your ankles and hips) and balance.

  5. Butt and Abs:

    Squats engage large groups of muscles and help toning and tightening your behind, abs, and, of course, your legs. They can help you achieve the figure you dreamed about.

  6. Toxin Flush:

    Squats improve the pumping of body fluids, aiding in removal of waste and delivery of nutrition to all tissues, including organs and glands. They also help regulate bowel movements.

We hope these reasons are enough for you to head out to the gym and start pumping squats till you are as toned as a model.
