You will feel great when you master these squats.

Legs are literally what keep you moving all day, so building strength in your lower half (yes, butt included) is crucial.

Many people neglect leg day because they think they are already working their legs all day, especially if they are doing leg workouts like running or biking and because it takes longer to see results as the leg muscles are so large, to begin with. Do not do that! You should do leg workouts that target your legs area at least once a week.

Start with four or five exercise moves into your workout routine, and switching leg workouts every couple of weeks. You may not see the difference right away, but you will feel it and if you keep at it, you will start to notice more definition in your legs over time.
