Most fitness experts agree that squats are the most effective lower body exercise.
This is probably due to the fact that the squat is so versatile. By making a few adjustments in foot placement you’re able to concentrate the exercise on different portions of your lower body.
Bring your feet in to a narrow stance and you’ll concentrate more on your quads. Bring your feet to a wide stance and you’ll activate more of your glutes.
Always remember to push your hips back as you go down and to avoid leaning forward with your knees.
