The Perfect Squat


Watch your step: The muscle you add to your legs might depend on the placement of your feet. That’s because the width of your stance affects how much weight you can squat, say scientists from Konan University, in Japan. To activate the most muscle, use a stance that’s one and a half times the width of your hips. If you’re like most men and don’t bring a ruler to the gym, stand with your feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart and point your toes slightly outward, says Mike Robertson CSCS.
