This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing considerations when you are doing the squats. Squats are an extremely popular exercise, especially when trying to strengthen, tone, and build butt muscles and leg muscles. However, there are a number of things you need to keep in mind to make sure this exercise is done safely and effectively for your body.
Squats are one of the most common exercises you will find. Whether they are being done with body weight, with a barbell or dumbbells, are part of a group fitness program, or done at home or at the gym, almost every workout routine incorporates some version of squats. But even though many people are doing them, most are not considering some key variables that will help to keep their muscles and joints safe.
One thing that is often overlooked is whether you should be doing squats with a wide stance or squats with a narrow stance. Many people tend to have their favorite way of doing squats, but what do each of these variations require from your body and which would actually be better for you?
Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss more considerations when doing squats.
