I don't deny or hide my love for booty exercises. I mean, I like having a nice little bump, but I'm not trying to have the saggy crease line that we often see being offered up as "sexy." Um, no thanks. That's not a fit booty. I'll pass! LOL Pay close attention to how he [...]

The most important part of squats is getting the form right - the movement (much like any exercise) is designed to cater specifically to a set of muscles, and the only way to ensure that you'll see results is if you make sure you're working the right muscles.

Hammer Bicep Curls
