7 Types of Squats and Their Benefits

7 Types of Squats and Their Benefits

There are loads of benefits of squats but which type is good for you right now? Here’s my progression guide and just to give you a heads up it’s not about going straight to barbell back squats!

If squats are something you struggle with or if you’re want to work on your technique then watch this video and put it into practice.

Squat Benefits & Why You Should Do Them

Be sure to keep an eye out for more youtube videos appearing on my channel and blog page! I’ll posting lots of fitness videos and exercise demonstrations this year. A big focus of mine is getting people to perform exercises properly. So, I do have pretty long explainations in my videos. But it’s worth learning the correct movement patterns from the get go!

Your squat challenge!

Try out the squat variations in the video above and let me know how you got on! Even better, if this video helped you then tag me @barefacedfitness on Instagram in your story or post.

Keep challenging yourself too! If you feel like you need to work on technique or squat depth, there is nothing wrong with doing a counter balance squat to work on this. You could even do this as a warm up before you main squat.

Just because these are progressions doesn’t mean that the other options are a ‘lesser’ squat. They all have their place and they’re all important and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t change things up every so often.

Like I said there are a lot of benefits of squats and their variations, so it’s time to try them out if you haven’t already!
