If you’re looking to build up strength in you legs, you need not join a gym or buy any expensive exercise equipment either. One of the best ways to give your legs a quick yet effective workout wherever you are is with body weight or Hindu squats. While the idea of them may sound relatively easy, a handful of them will bring you to your knees.
To perform a Hindu squat, start with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Extend your arms in front of you, parallel to the ground. Inhale while pulling your hands straight back behind your body. Next, exhale as you bend your knees, stand on the balls of your feet while crouching to the ground, squatting above your ankles. Stand back up and repeat the process as many times as you can.
Depending on how in shape you are, you should be able to do around 50 or so your first time. Add Hindu squats to your daily exercise regime and you should be able to increase that number by five or 10 each day or two. Incredibly, doing multiple hundred at one time is not uncommon, though it may seem impossible after your first try.
This is an exercise that is great for any man who wants to increase power and endurance in his legs. Women will want to give it a shot too if they’re looking for an easy way to work their legs each day. The end result, regardless of sex, will be toned and strong legs you’ll want to show off.
