Squats are a very good exercise to start with for most beginners and it is the easiest exercise. The squat exercise focuses on various muscle groups like hamstrings, abdomen, body parts, calves, back, and the leg muscles.
They can be used to strengthen the entire muscle group in the lower part of the body and should be done with utmost care. During the muscle building, we can focus on the weight distribution of our body between the heels and the foot balls.
For some people whose ankles are rigid and do not easily bend, they can follow some other options like using squat racks that can be easy to do. The muscle movement, which is eccentric, can be done and at the same time we can place, the feet flat above the floor and then distribute our body weight evenly between the foot balls and our heels.
People with rigid ankles can use flat board under their heels to enhance their muscle flexibility. They can also use some other artificial help to improve the flexibility of the muscles. After reaching such a level, they can avoid using such aids.
The weight lifting routines should be done by wearing specially made shoes for squats. These types of boots have raised heels, which are closed with the help of wooden block.
There are also other options to do this without any artificial help just by applying more pressure from our heels on the foot and not on our toes and to put more focus on concentric muscles in order to maintain a great balance.
The barbell squats can be done in power cages or with the help of experts to avoid getting caught below the bars. These experts give us some instruction to do the work outs easily and also to avoid the danger in such workouts.
The first thing we must do while starting with our body weight routines with the help of coaches or physical trainers. Then we must also take care that no injuries are caused to the lower portion of the body while doing squats.
This can be done only by getting proper advice from experts. There are lots of chances for our knees and joints to get affected and we can avoid it only by following expert advice and sticking to the rules laid out by them.
