The Back Squat – Why Do It? 

  • The Back Squat is a compound movement that recruits almost every muscle in the body – when performed correctly.
  • This exercise targets the quadriceps, which make up the largest muscle group of the human body.
  • Of all exercises, the Back Squat induces the body to release more ‘Testosterone’ as well as the much sought after IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor 1).
  • Testosterone and IGF-1 are the two primary hormones which create an anabolic effect in the body, promoting overall Strength and Muscle Growth.
  • Compound lifts, like the Back Squat, promote the most over-all muscle gains.
  • Lift Big = Get Strong = Get Big
