Bodyweight squats are an excellent compound move that you can do anywhere, at any time using the resistance of your own weight. As well as being a great exercise to work out and strengthen almost the entire body, as they require a significant amount of effort to do, they are a great addition to fat loss training circuits. Muscles trained include the glutes, hamstrings, quads, calves, core and back.
The proper form is outlined in this guide: Squatters
If your weight isn’t on your heels and your bum isn’t ending up below your knees, then you aren’t doing it right, arms can be placed behind the head to make them harder.
The challenge is to do 25 bodyweight squats a day, with the outlined technique consecutively every day of the week, for one week.
