Reasons to squat

1. First of all, you will build up your muscles, and not only one set of them, but several, since while squatting you trigger not only your butt and leg muscles, but ab and back ones, too.

2. Your legs are your greatest support, that is why working on them decreases chances of imbalance and falling, which in turn saves you from unnecessary injury.

3. While you gain muscle, as it was said above, you also burn fat – it is a win-win situation.

4. To squat, there is nothing else you need than your body weight, so you save on the equipment.
