Nothing beats a squat. This is Jeffrey! I’m one of the new coaches here at EarthFIT, I’m gonna be doing a new series called the Squat Series. I’ll be explaining different kinds of squats for you all in throughout. Probably about a seven part series here. I’m doing back squats, front squats, bodyweight squats, all different variations because nothing beats a squat and its benefits. First squat I’ll go over today, along with just some ins and outs with squatting is just gonna be a bodyweight. squat. First thing we want to talk about here is what muscles are gonna be targeted here.
So you got your hammies,
you got your glutes,
you got your quads
then you got your calves.
You got your hips as well, too. Your hip flexors… all those are gonna be targeted here. So all the main muscles that are in your legs are gonna be… we won’t say smoked, but they’re gonna be worked out here in your , as far as your squat workout goes.
Now there’s so many different benefits for squatting – to get some bigger, stronger legs. You work on your mobility, you work on your strength, your posture, even just as far as injury prevention, you’re gonna decrease that, drop that risk. Now the biggest thing here, as far as lining up for your squat, you’re gonna have your feet about shorter width apart here, and then we’re gonna have toes pointed out. So each toes are gonna be pointed towards you right there. And then we’re gonna have our chest up here and then we’re gonna stick those hips back and drop those hips down. As we go down all the way, stopping at parallel. See right here, you’re gonna have a 90 degree angle… A 90 degree angle, and then we’re gonna come back up here and squeeze the glutes right at the top.
So this is just a simple bodyweight squat y’all. This is what’s gonna start us off in our squat series. Just adding these ins, these simple movements, such as a squat, maybe a couple times a week during your workout, it’s gonna increase everything for you. As far as mobility, joint protection, even your strength, your legs are gonna look bigger. We’re not all trying to have massive legs, but it’s a nice benefit to have strength there, especially when you get older. So just to recap, y’all this is gonna be the first video here of our squat series, just a simple bodyweight squat to start out, and then we’re gonna move into bigger, better, and add some more weight here on our back and on the front here as well. So thank you all for tuning in. Look forward to the next episode. Once again, this is Jeffrey Squat Series.
