Squats Exercise

Squats Exercise

Squats Exercise: To build mass and strength in the legs muscles, especially the thighs. Full squats exercise are one of the traditional mass-building exercises for legs muscles and the entire lower body but are primarily for developing all four heads of the quadriceps.

1) With the barbell on a rack, step under it so that it rests across the back of your shoulders, hold on to the bar to balance it, raise up to lift it off the rack, and step away.

2) The squats exercise can be done with your feet flat on the floor or your heels resting on a low block for support.

3) Keeping your head up and back straight, bend your knees and lower yourself until your thighs are just below than parallel to the floor when performing the squats exercise.

4) Push yourself back up to the starting position of squats exercise.

It is important to go below parallel in squats movement, especially when you are just learning the squats exercise, so that you develop strength along the entire range of motion. If you don't go low enough in the beginning, you could injure yourself later when using heavier weight.

Foot position to some extent determines which area of the thighs you work the most while doing squats: A wider stance works the inside of the thighs to a greater degree, while a narrower stance tends to work the outside more; toes turned out hits the inside of the thighs. The basic stance for greatest power is usually feet shoulder-width apart, with toes turned just slightly out.
