SHERMAN, TX-- Anthony Boling of Ultimate Family Fitness tackles fitness myths and shows us how to do the proper "squat."
Excessive cardio will strip muscle and body fat. This is definitely not the most efficient method to lose body fat. Once you begin stripping muscle tissue, your body becomes less efficient at burning body fat. Muscle is metabolically active, which simply means it stimulates the metabolism.
Squats- strengthen your quads, gluteus muscles and calf muscles. With your feet shoulder width apart, bend at the knees and lower yourself as low as you can. Aim to have your thighs parallel to the floor and then slowly return to the starting position.
