Body Weight Squats

Body Weight Squats are beginners to intermediate leg strengthening exercise. The squat is generally not considered a core exercise. Dispite this a correct squat technique is a progression from the beginners core exercises into an exercise that requires the lower back to be positioned correctly and to be supported by the abdominals. 

The Body Weight Squat can be used as a leg strengthening exercise for beginners. More advance individuals can use squats as a leg endurance or cardiovascular movement in circuit training or as part of a running program
