How long will it take you to complete 21 squats? 

Squats activate a range of big muscles groups that assist in overall strength and balance, building strong muscles and strong joints while helping burn more fat.There are not many general everyday movements in our lives that don’t involve a squat style movement so ‘don’t skip leg day’!
