REASONS WHY WOMEN SHOULD SQUAT MORE

WOMAN SQUATTING
Squatting is one of the most effective exercises to perform. If you are in seek of a potential way to enhance your overall fitness and receive some remarkable results faster from your fitness routine, performing squats would be the best thing to do. The benefits of squats are undeniable for women.

No matter what’s reps counts, you workout hours, or a set goal, your fitness training routine should include squat exercise. Squats are relatively easy to perform and do not require any equipment and performable at almost anywhere.

Needless to mention that squats are considered as ‘Leg exercise,’ but the benefits of squats actually covers more than just your lower body.

Matter of fact, squatting has the ability to benefit your entire body that includes your inner organs.

The majority of women have this misconception that squatting is only for the lower body and has nothing to with the rest of our bodies. Irrespective of the body part, the benefits of squats have a lot of things to do with our entire body. Let’s take a quick look at these squat benefits, shall we?


BUILD MUSCLE
If you don’t already know, squats are one of the best leg exercises to build muscle in the lower body. They do not focus on one particular muscle group only but incorporate all the muscles in the legs as well as work your core.

BURN FAT

More muscle equals less fat. That simple. Of course, a proper diet is an extremely important part of burning fat, but the human body naturally burns more calories each day to maintain a pound of muscle than it does to maintain a pound of fat. Therefore, the more muscle you build, the more calories your body will naturally burn each day at rest.

BLOOD CIRCULATION

Since the heart is located in the upper area of the chest, it’s hardest for the body to get constant blood flow in the legs. Regular squat routines will get the body used to pump blood and nutrients towards those muscles.

MORE OFTEN, NO EQUIPMENT NEEDED

Squats can be done anywhere at any time. Although it’s not recommended to do them anywhere at any time, the fact is that with or without weights, squats can easily work the legs and glutes (butt) and still be beneficial towards the entire body.

TOTAL BODY EXERCISE

Not only do squats focus on the legs and core but they are a total body exercise. Completing a proper squat requires flexibility, range of motion, and stability in the whole body. Your hips, shoulders, back, chest, elbows, ankles, calves, butt, abs, and even your wrists are all part of a proper squat. So even if you’re not trying to get that “bubble butt” squats are still one of the most important exercises in fitness.

IMPROVE FLEXIBILITY

Like I said above, a proper squat requires flexibility and range of motion so for someone who does not attain those qualities, it’s going to be less motivating to do it. Always remember, “Practice makes perfect.” By not squatting or doing some sort of leg exercise, not only is your flexibility not going to get better, but it’s going to get worse. The only way to fix something is to work on it, and squats will strengthen as well as stretch all the muscles in the legs and hips.

PREVENT INJURY

Squatting is not just about building muscle or burning fat. It’s a way to keep your body healthy and being able to do more than just everyday activities without worrying about injuring or even re-injuring yourself. For those who never had an injury, it’s just as important to squat as it is for someone who has had injuries (knee, back, shoulder, neck, elbow, wrist, hip, etc.) in the past. Building muscle feeds needed nutrients to the body which is meant to help prevent as well as recover from an injury.

DIGESTION

Since squatting helps blood and nutrients flow downwards in the body, it helps the flow of fluids too, easing the passing of waste through your bowels.

LESSEN BACK STRAIN

Believe it or not, weightless squats can be a great workout to keep the strain off of your back and help focus on using your leg muscles to perform the exercise. Increasing the use of the proper form will eventually strengthen the back and core to help you move up in weight as well as incorporating other squat movements like back squats, front squats, deadlifts, etc.

BUILD A BUTT!!!

Ok so let’s get to the real reason why women should squat. Building a butt is not something just men want in a woman. A nice booty shows off a woman’s physique like abs do to men. Squatting is the most recommended exercise to work out the entire body, strengthen the legs, and tone up the butt in no time!
