The Why?:

  • Squats are mostly known as a leg exercise, but they promote body-wide muscle building by catalyzing an anabolic environment

  • Squats are also one of the best functional exercises out there, promoting mobility and balance and helping yo1. Epic Core Strength It’s no secret that overhead pressing requires our stabilizing muscles to kick in and create a strong posture and torso. In this scenario, we’re talking about the EMG activation of the rectus abdominis, external oblique, and erector spinae.

  • THE PRESS When testing athletes in bilateral and unilateral dumbbell shoulder presses (along with seated vs. standing), activation of all three selected muscle groups were higher in the standing population, and even more so with unilateral pressing. This study looked at dumbbell presses, but barbell pressing will engage the core as well and will have a similar response. u complete real-world activities with ease

  • Squats also help you to burn more fat, as one of the most time-efficient ways to burn more calories continually is by developing more muscle

  • Squats have long been criticized for being destructive to your knees, but research shows that when done properly, squats actually improve knee stability and strengthen connective tissue

The Why?:

When you do other lifting exercises, like a bench press, for example, you’re not doing anything you might really do in real life. When are you ever going to have the need to lay on your back and push something in the air — unless you’re giving your two-year-old “flying lessons.” The Deadlift develops the muscles you need to actually carry something, like a bucket of water, those heavy grocery bags or your neighbor’s dining room table.

The Deadlift can help prevent injuries by increasing the strength of your muscles around critical tendons and ligaments. Supporting joints with strong muscles is crucial to preventing injury, especially in the hamstrings and lower back, according to Outlaw Fitness.


They make you stronger

The burpee is a full body strength training exercise and the ultimate example of functional fitness.

With every rep, you’ll work your arms, chest, quads, glutes, hamstrings, and abs. After a few sets of burpees, your legs should feel a little bit like lead.
