Not everybody who exercises regularly does it for six-pack abs. For some, the sole motive is to stay healthy and fit. Exercising makes your muscles and bones strong and increases your range of motion to perform daily activities with ease. Squats is one such functional exercise that you must include in your daily routine to increase your balance and flex your muscles. The exemplary lower body exercise prepares you to perform basic activities like sitting, bending and running, without getting injured.
The non-equipment exercise works on your quadriceps femoris, the adductor magnus, and the gluteus maximus muscles.

If you too are struggling with this exercise then here is what your body is trying to tell you.
