Once I realized that I could do squats without putting stress on my knees, I’ve been incorporating different stances into my workouts. I’m also learning that doing squats safely can offer many benefits to my Plus Size Fitness journey. Two main reasons I do squats are:
1.) Injury prevention: The last thing we want is to hurt ourselves in a way that keeps us out of the gym. Squats help strengthen stabilizer muscles, ligaments and connective tissues where a lot of athletic injuries happen.
2.) Increased Mobility: Being plus size can put stress on my joints, so I want to make sure my legs are here to support me well into my elderly years, so that I can be the old lady twerking on my husband at my grandkids wedding. Squats helps me build that foundation.
And of course, we always want our bums looking as nice as possible 😉 Scroll down for my 3 minute squat video + todays Plus Size Gym Clothes outfit deets. The workout starts at the 1:40 mark– perhaps you’ll throw on some workout clothes and join me?
