Fit 4 Mom- Los Angeles

Helping moms make strides in fitness, motherhood and life

Squat Competition

on October 29, 2012

The squat is a great exercise to work the muscles of the lower body!  It is also a great way to condition our bodies for the many tasks of motherhood; picking little ones up off the floor, moving strollers in and out of cars, etc.  The muscles involved in the squat include:

Primary Muscles: Erector Spinae, Gluteus Maximus (glutes), Quadriceps, Rectus femoris, Vastus intermedius (Cruraeus), Vastus lateralis (Vastus externus), Vastus medialis (vastus internus), Hamstrings

Secondary Muscles: Transverse Abdominus, Gluteus medius/minimus (Abductors), Adductors, Soleus, Gastrocnemius
