The squat is a lower-body strength exercise that targets the quads, hamstrings and glutes. The exercise also improves posture and increases flexibility and hip mobility. Correct form requires you to push your hips back and lower your body until your upper thighs are at least parallel to the floor, and then pressing back up to the starting position.
