Overview

The Olympic squat is a compound exercise that targets the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. It is performed by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and a barbell across your back. You then lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the ground and return to the starting position. The Olympic squat is a challenging exercise, but it is also one of the most effective for building strength and muscle mass.
