Now a days it appears everyone loves squats. With the hunt to develop the perfect J. Lo or Kim Kardashian butt, it seems everyone is obsessed with it. The squat is a fanatic exercise that is used to strengthen and build muscle around the Gluteus Maximus, Quadriceps and Hamstrings. It is also one of the Primary Movements Of Exercise. The squat uses some of the largest muscles in the body which allows for the most growth.
Most people tend to have a love/hate relationship with squats. It is a necessary exercise that is pivotal for athletes, and as a former football player they provided many post workouts of jelly legs. Thus the hatred. However it did produce a greater strength, power, speed, and explosiveness, that would have lacked without it.
