Squats are large, forceful movements that demand a great deal of energy and engage a vast array of muscles.
That the squat burns significantly more calories than its machine-based competitor, the leg press.
Squat down with a straight spine and an overhand grip on the barbell.
It engages your entire body, it is intense, and – here's the best part –it optimizes your hormones for fat loss.
With your body straight and your weight supported on your toes, place your palms beneath your shoulders.
Remember that the more muscles you engage, the more calories your body can burn, making this a wonderful exercise for weight loss.
Just a few repetitions of this core-targeting exercise require enough energy to maintain fat burning.
Load five-kilogram plates onto a barbell and grasp it with an overhand, shoulder-width clutch.

Take one end in each hand while holding your limbs at your side.
Start the movement by raising one arm as fast as possible to shoulder height.
