  1. My weight is perfectly fine….
    People think im underweight coz of my- wrists, stomach and arms (they r very thin).
    But wht bothers me is that i have a lot of mass on my thighs ( )
    They just ruined my proportions and i cant wear those tight jeans…. i really wanna do squats but i think maybe it will build muscles and my thighs will look more masculline🥲🥲🥲 can smone reply like what should i do?
    I dont wanna lose weight coz then i will be too skinny but i really wanna lose my thigh fat

  2. People don't realize how such a simple squat can really get the hart pumping !!!! I burn 1000-1500 calories a day on my stationary bike, but what really gets my hart pumping is doing 50-75 squats with a 25 pound dumbbell.

  3. I think,
    Squat without weight – Lose Weight + Build Muscles
    Squat with weight – Lose More Weight + Build More Muscles

  4. building muscle burns fat anyway so why does it matter how you do the squat i would perfer to do the slow squats cuz it puts more strain and packs on more muscle to burn the fat

  5. So I’m about 270 5’7 and I only started but I’ve been doing 4 sets of 10 with a dumbbell every day and increasing 10 reps per day. And then usually 30 curls per arm, and then 3 sets of 10 bench press. I’m mostly trying to lose weight but running isn’t my forte as it really hurts my knees after a couple of days so I’d rather not. But is what I’m doing if performed on a daily basis suitable to lose weight but still gain muscle?

  6. I love squat n always 150-200/days in morning also afternoon and have reward for my good body. I feel fit confident 😊
