Why Do Squats?
If you only do one exercise for toning and making the entire body strong, it should be squats. Squats engage and contract every major muscle group in the body, as well as get your heart rate up.
After performing an intense squat reps workout, your body releases hormones which help you build muscle everywhere else in your body, including your arms, chest back, shoulders and abs.
All you have to do to get started is take the initial test. The initial test is simply to do as many consecutive squats as you can. Based on how many you can do, the pace is set for your progressive challenge. Get the 200 squats mobile app to track your progress on your smart phone.
