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.

  1. I have had lower back issues for a long time I am sure doing this kind o exercise I can build my back up and straighten it! Since I was a young lad I have had lower back issues. Never could find a way to make my back better. I also know that my weight has something to do with it also.

    • Often times lower back tightness also has a lot to do with the flexibility of your hamstrings Ed. Maybe take a visit to your doctor and see what remedy he/she recommends. I don’t envy anyone with lower back pain.
