Of all the lower body and “bum” friendly exercises the squat should be number one. Squats are the king of all leg and glute exercises when performed correctly. Additionally, due to the intensity of squatting it also taxes your cardio vascular system and kick up your metabolism!
Old-fashioned bodyweight squats that go below parallel are a great way to develop head turning legs and glutes. The key is to concentrate and develop proper mind to muscle connection to target those areas throughout the workout. Remember to squeeze your glutes at the top of the movement.
**Warm-up by doing 3 or 4 bodyweight squats to get blood in your glutes, quads and hamstrings. A proper warmup is also key in preventing injury by preparing you for the heavier sets that are about to come.
