Toned Butt and Legs
Looking to tone your butt and legs without leaving home? A squat workout is a great way to do just that! We will discuss the benefits of squats and provide a few simple squat workouts at home that you can do in no time.
The first thing you need to do is find a comfortable place to squat. This can be done against a wall, with a chair, or even just using your own bodyweight. Once you have found a comfortable place to squat, it’s time to start your workout!
For beginners, we recommend starting with bodyweight squats. To do this, simply stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and lower yourself down into a squatting position. Make sure to keep your back straight and knees behind your toes as you lower yourself down. Once you have reached the bottom of the squat, hold for a second before pushing yourself back up to the starting position. Repeat this for 12-15 reps.
If you are looking for a more challenging workout, you can add weight to your squats. This can be done by holding a dumbbell in each hand or by wearing a weighted vest. If you are using dumbbells, hold them at shoulder level with your palms facing inward. As you lower yourself into the squat, be sure to keep your shoulders back and chest up. Lower yourself down until your thighs are parallel with the ground and hold for a second before pushing back up to the starting position. Repeat this for 12-15 reps.
Remember, when performing any type of squat it is important to maintain good form. This means keeping your back straight, knees behind your toes, and abdominal muscles engaged throughout the entire movement. Doing so will not only help you get the most out of your workout, but it will also help prevent injury.
Now that you know how to perform a squat, it’s time to put together a workout! We have provided two simple at-home workouts below that you can do in no time.
