Squatting should be a staple in anyone’s fitness routine. No matter what your goal or ability level is, humans were made to squat. It’s evident in how children and toddlers bend to pick something up, or play with something on the floor. It’s a movement that is engrained in our biology, and it’s only when we subject ourselves to sitting behind a desk in school or at work that we lose the ability to do something so natural!
Being able to squat builds strong legs, strong core, and improves your daily function like standing up from a chair or walking up a flight of stairs. Squats come in all shapes and forms, from body weight squats to barbell squats and kettlebell squats, and hundreds of other variations. However, a great place to start is with your Total Gym!
