Targets: Quads, Hamstrings, Glutes, Core

Perks: Squats are a compound exercise (using multiple muscle groups) that sculpt the legs and help shape the butt.

Move: Stand on your band with your feet about hip-width apart. (Fit Tip: The width of your stance can vary; find what is most comfortable for you. A wide stance works best for some while others find hip-width most comfortable.) Keep your head and chest up as you lower into a squat position. Return to a standing position and repeat.
