Squat Exercise

About Squat Exersise

In strength training, the squat is a compound, full body exercise that trains primarily the muscles of the thighs,hips and buttocks, quads (vastus lateralus, medialis and intermedius and rectus femoris), hamstrings, as well as strengthening the bones, ligaments and insertion of the tendons throughout the lower body. Squats are considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the legs and buttocks, as well as developingcore strength. Isometrically, the lower back, the upper back, the abdominal, the trunk muscles, the costal muscles, and the shoulders and arms are all essential to the exercise and thus are trained when squatting with the proper form.
