Squats exercise are to develop lower body fast, so you should learn how to do squats and put them into your workout routines. This way you’ll soon have a much stronger lower body as well as starting to get a ripped upper body with your abs exercises and bodybuilding.
Squats are still the ultimate exercise to develop your lower body and your entire body also. You will use most of your bodies muscles in performing it correctly and you will see and feel the results in a very short time frame.
The key to doing squats correctly is to concentrate your form and NOT the amount of weight you are using! Make sure you are going down with your back straight, you are in balance, and that you go down to at least where your knees are level to the floor.
If you are unable to go down to a parallel position then you need to be doing squats with any weights, and even with the use of chair or other object to help you keep your balance. Keep working on getting lower and being in good balance over a period of few weeks till your get flexible enough to get the correct form.
FeedBack & Questions
I’d like some feedback from the power squatters out there regarding form, especially bar placement, width of stance and eyes during the exercise.
Currently I’m focused up with my eyes prior to descent, the bar is on the top of the traps and the feet are just a bit wider than shoulder width.
I know “practice makes perfect” but how do guys like Hatfield, Coan and others get such high totals? Do they change the “point of leverage” by putting the bar lower on the scapulas? How about a 4-6 week cycle of “rest-pause” squats for power? Any comments are welcome.
IM NEW I NEED HELP WITH MY LEGZ AND ARMZ MY CHEST IZ BIGGER THAN ANY THING ELSE COULD ANY 1 HELP ME ANY TIME SOON?
Because everyone loves to train chest! Bench – inclines- flys-0 declines – YEAH everyone does these all the time.
But squats are your main exercise and they will kick your butt but they will also give you the best results. Do them first and you will see your legs blow up.
As for arms remember your triceps are the main part of your arms and 2/3 of the size and to not over train them.
