Why The Squat Is Key For Fat Loss!

Remember if your goal is to lose body fat then your focus in every workout should be to rev-up your metabolism and keep it revved up for the rest of your day.

That’s why the Squat for me is the top exercise to do this. It is key to increasing and maintaining lean muscle tissue.

It’s also a compound exercise which means your be working more than just one muscle at a time, therefore your body will require fair more energy (calories) than say a bicep curl or leg extension which are both isolation exercises, and as only a single muscle is required these exercises use less calories.

Try this full body workout for shredding fat, and notice the first two exercises are a squat variation 😅

Its a great format that can be tailored to any fitness level…
