Squat: The Complete Guide to Squat Form

The squat, along with the deadlift, is one of the two most important lifts for developing your strength. The squat works many lower body muscles. Primarily it works your your quads and glutes. But it also works your hamstrings, hips, lower back, and even your abs. Although it mostly works your lower body, you’ll see total body improvements once you start squatting. Since squats work the largest muscles in your body, they trigger the release of testosterone & growth hormones that help muscle growth in your upper body as well. Ladies, this doesn’t mean you’ll get overly muscular because your body won’t produce as much as a man’s will.

Deadlift: The Complete Guide to Deadlift Form

The deadlift and the squat are the two most important lifts for developing overall strength. Just like the squat, the deadlift targets your lower body muscles. It primarily works your posterior chain muscles like your glutes, hamstrings, erector spinae, and quads. It also works your hip muscles and your core. By working these large lower body muscles, you will also see upper body improvements because of the hormonal effects it has on your body.
