    Don't forget to work on your hamstrings as well. Squats focus primarily on the quadriceps, therefore for a fuller and a well-rounded workout include a few reps of leg curls, stiff-leg dead-lift, lying leg curl and standing leg curl in combination with squats.

    Your posture is of the utmost importance. Make sure that your back is straight and your knees don't cross your feet while you squat. If not done correctly, it can cause injury to your lower back.
