Exercises for the Lower Body


How many ways can you do squats? Turns out, more than you may think. Basic squats are excellent for the butt, hips, thighs and calves but they can get a little boring over time, especially if you need to add a little intensity. This photo gallery below shows just how many variations are available from the easiest (chair or assisted squats) to the hardest (one-legged squats).

When creating a lower body workout, try new kinds of squats on a regular basis to challenge both your mind and your body.
