Doing squats proves to have a major impact on your entire body. Not only will you build muscle and burn fat, but you will also find that daily activities will be much easier. Before starting any exercise, you should have a solid warm up routine to help loosen muscles. While standing with your back straight and your feet just over shoulder width apart, slowly bend your knees until you are at a ninety-degree angle. The next step is to simply return to a stand. Breathe in as you squat and breathe out as you stand. Doing this fifteen to twenty times up to three times a week should improve your body.
