I did a 3 minute low squat every day for a week – here’s what happened

If I asked you to think of a lower body exercise, I bet the squat would be one of the first exercises you thought of. But if you really want to up the ante and make your squats work even harder, dropping into a squat and holding it is a surefire way to get your legs burning. Holding a low squat isn’t easy, and holding a low squat for three minutes is a real challenge, as I found out when I added it to my workouts every day for a week just for fun.

The benefits of squatting

The squat works excellently on the muscles of the lower body, especially the quads, hamstrings and glutes. The glutes work especially hard if you focus on pressing through the heel as you come up from the squat. Don’t just take my word for it – research has found that squatting can help build muscle in the lower body.
