Seven Minute Low Impact Squat Sesh

Low Impact Sunday Squat Sesh Forget diamonds! You will often hear me say that actually, squats, are a girls best friend. Why? Because they target so many muscles, including the glutes, quadriceps and if done correctly, deep core muscles too. They also benefit the hip, calves, hamstrings and obliques. And if you include the upper body exercises I suggest on this video, they target your chest, back, shoulders and triceps too! And don’t assume because these particular exercises are low impact that they won’t burn calories and melt fat. Oh no no no. Low impact can still be high intensity! Squats also lower your chances of injuring your knees and ankles. As you exercise, the movement strengthens your tendons, bones, and ligaments around the leg muscles. It takes some of the weight off your knees and ankles. And make your knees more stable too. Squats help boost your bone mineral density for stronger bones. It adds strength to your skeleton, mainly in the spine and lower body. This is particularly important for women whereby bone density starts to decrease around menopause due to the lowered levels of estrogen. Squats improve your flexibility. As you become older, your tendons, muscles, and ligaments become less elastic. Regularly doing squats can help slow down this process and limber you up!! And wait there’s more, as the squats strengthen and firm your glutes (your butt), your posture and balance may also improve. Aside from the above, squats can help to ground us, to connect with the earth, to feel into our power, enforce boundaries, and to express and discharge dense energy. So you can see why I love squats so much! Truly, a few squats a day keeps the doctor away! Happy squatting folks! 🥰
