Still, many individuals avoid the movement due to outdated fitness myths implying that squats are bad for the knees or squats will make you bulky.

Trust us, if you want to get the best results possible from your training program, you want to squat, and squat often.

Today, we give you SEVEN different types of squats you can use in your workouts to keep you mentally motivated and physically challenged.

Before we get to the various types of squats, let’s quickly recap the muscles worked during the squat.

What Muscle Groups Work During Squats?

Squats activate an incredibly large amount of muscle in the body -- particularly the muscle groups in your thighs (quads and hamstrings), hips, and glutes.

They provide a tremendous muscle-building “bang” for your exercise effort “buck.”

The traditional high-bar back squat places most of the tension on the quads and glutes; however, other squat variations can more heavily emphasize other areas of the legs.

For example, sumo squats tend to emphasize more of the inner thigh, hamstrings, hip flexors, and calves.

Plyometric squat variations, such as jump squats, activate the muscles in your calves, foot and ankle.

Therefore, if you’re looking to tone and tighten your legs as best as possible, it makes sense to incorporate a variety of squats into your training program.

Now, let’s get to the seven types of squat you need to try in your workouts!
