Parallel Wide Squat // 100 reps

What it does: This move works all lower body muscle groups, with a main focus on the glutes.

What to do: Stand with the feet wider than hips distance apart. At a brisk pace, squat down by bringing your bum back like you are sitting in a chair and do not allow your knees to fall forward. Lower down to 90 degrees or where the legs are in the shape of an “L.” Squeeze the sit bones, drive through the heels and stand, lengthening the legs, and not buckling out the knees. Inhale down, exhale up. Try to finish all 100 reps in under 3 minutes.

    Can you do squats as a warm up for a cardio workout?  Also can you over train, by doing them five days a week?
