Squats have been dubbed the king of all exercises. That’s mainly because of its extremely beneficial effects on the body, working multiple muscle groups, increasing overall strength, and spiking human growth hormone. That said, squatting may not be beneficial to everyone depending on their specific goals.
For someone looking to have a balanced physique without any body parts overpowering the others in terms of overall size and shape, then adding squats to your routine will be very dependent upon your genetics. That’s right, if you have the kind of genetics that make your legs responded dramatically to squats then the movement may not be the most ideal.
