  • No Expensive Equipment

Bodyweight squats don’t need any expensive equipment in order to deliver results. In fact, aside from building muscles like the weighted version, bodyweight squats have all of the other benefits. You don’t need so much as a dumbbell to get started, either. Just find somewhere with enough room that you can stretch out a little bit and get to it.

  • Fewer Injuries

Since squats work to strengthen such a wide range of muscles, if you’re a runner you’re going to have a lot fewer injuries. Squats keep your legs and core strong, so they’re a must when you start training for longer runs. Even if you can barely walk through a 5k, squats will help you to train with less risk of injury.

  • Get A Killer Core

Nothing works your core like weighted squats, but even if you just use body weight resistance you’re going to burn a lot of fat. That translates to amazing abs and a killer core. You thought you had to do sit-ups until you could barely move to get the tummy you’ve always wanted, but it turns out that doing squats are just as effective. They even work the difficult to train muscles along the sides of your abs.

  • Cut Away Cellulite

As well as increasing blood flow to your joints, squats also get blood pumping to your thighs. Some studies have shown that cellulite is caused by poor circulation as well as the buildup of pockets of fat. Doing squats can reverse the process that leads to cellulose, and enhance the appearance of your hips, thighs, belly, and butt.

  • Improve Your Posture

If you’ve ever wanted to walk like a beauty queen, squats are for you. Since they work your entire core, including your back, squats help a lot with your posture. You’ll be walking to straight and steady that you can balance a book on your head no problem. Plus, you’ll never have to hear the words “sit up straight” again.

  • Get a Rounder, Perkier Butt

There’s no two ways about it, squats are great for your butt. If you want to get a round, perky butt then squats are the way to go. Squats help to build up your glutes and quads, as well as burn fat from your booty.
