1. An AMAZING Butt

Let’s start with the obvious: do squats, get a nice butt. And I mean a nice butt. All that pain and tension from performing a perfect squat is well worth the work when you’re walking around with a backside that is firm, toned, and oh-so-luscious.

2. Gorgeous Legs

When you’re performing a squat, you’ll obviously feel a lot of pressure on your legs. It’s a good thing. That means that you’re actually performing the exercise correctly. And in the meantime, you’re building strong, gorgeous legs free of fat and cellulite. The end result? Toned, smooth, and luscious legs that are bikini ready. Why spend hours rotating on different leg-targeting gym machines when you can spend 10 minutes doing squats and hit all the right spots at once? There’s a clear winner here.

3. No More Cellulite

Oh. My. Gosh. Did you just read that correctly? Yep, you sure did. There is an actual way to get rid of cellulite. (I know, calm down. Take a deep breath.) The answer is: you guessed it, squats. When you perform squats, your muscles start stretching which helps the flow of blood throughout your entire body. This not only results in better overall health as an increase in nutrients are being circulated to vital organs/muscles, but also means you can officially say goodbye to stubborn cellulite.

4. Better Digestion

Do you ever deal with bloat? How about irregularity of the bowels? Well, squats can help with that too. The muscle action required to perform a squat actually improves the flow of fluids in your body, thus resulting in less bloat and the releasing of waste at a better and more comfortable pace.

5. More Muscles Overall

This doesn’t mean you can completely skip your arm workout. But performing squats regularly will actually help to build muscle throughout your entire body at a much more rapid pace. The intensity of a squat is so incredibly high that it actually triggers anabolic movement throughout the entire body, thus resulting in the growth of muscle tissue.
