Did you know that squats are one of the simplest and best exercises to perform for maximum positive results in your overall fitness? No wonder it is such a popular choice amongst exercisers. After warming up and taking your position, simply bend your knees, hips and ankles until you reach a right angle. Repeat this from the start for 15 – 20 times, 3 times a week at least, for amazing results. Unfortunately, some still do not appreciate this killer move as much as it should be. To convince them (and also for the ‘doers’), here’s a look at eight of the best reasons for performing squats.
1. Bye Bye Constipation
One of the most surprising and lesser-known benefits of squatting is that it greatly aids in faster and effective removal of body waste. To start off, they heighten the pumping rate of body juices to important tissues and organs and help them get enough nutrition. Additionally, squatting promotes the movement of waste along the large intestine, which in turn reduces constipation and even, bloating. Hence, the motto here is, “Squat Regular to Get Regular!”
So, to the ‘squatters’ out there: a big thumbs-up to you all. To those who have started to think of squatting: you are on the right track to better fitness. Squatting has so many benefits that don’t be surprised if performing squats turns out to be the best fitness decision you’ve taken in your life.
2. Squat Harder, Look Better, Feel Healthier
The benefits of squats are endless. Want to amaze your audience by going backless or flaunting a tight mini dress? Then, squatting is the way to go. Arms, legs, abs, back and definitely, your butt will be greatly toned if you squat regularly. Plus, you get to reap the health benefits like lower chances of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases throughout your life. Unbelievable, huh?
