Advantages Of Doing 2 mins! Squat Everyday
Squatting is one of the most natural movements that involve the right length, strength and balance of the entire muscle chain, right from the ankle at the bottom to the neck at the top.
Our bodies are meant to be able to squat, our bodies love to squat. It’s just how they have evolved over past thousands of years.Evolution 101!
But our excessively sedentary lifestyle is continuously causing long-term muscle imbalance, which is clearly in losing our natural ability to go into a deep squat.
So making squats a part of our daily fitness regime has immense benefits in restoring the natural balance and strength of our bodies. Let’s learn what?
What Are the Advantages of Doing Squat Everyday?
1. Squats improve balance and coordination
One of the key benefits of squats is that they improve our balance and coordination. This is because squats engage multiple muscle chain groups, including those in our core and legs responsible for maintaining balance.
2. Squats help improve flexibility
Squats involve a full range of motion, promoting flexibility in various muscle groups including hamstrings, calves and joints. The deep bending and stretching during a squat help to increase the flexibility of the hip, knee, and ankle joints.
3. Squats help improve strength
Squats are perhaps one of the best exercises for improving overall strength. It targets the muscles in the lower body, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves to help improve our overall strength.
4. Squats help improve joint mobility
Regular squatting helps your joints improve their range of motion. This is particularly beneficial for maintaining joint health, especially in the knees and hips
How to do squats correctly?
To do a squat workout correctly, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, toes pointing slightly outward.
Bend your knees and hips and lean your torso slightly forward as you lower your body towards the floor. Keep your back straight and your head up.
Pause briefly at the bottom of the squat, then slowly reverse the motion, returning to the starting position.
