One of the biggest misconceptions is that squatting deep (below parallel) is bad for your knees.
HOWEVER, when there weren’t any chairs, recliners, sofas or even TOILETS for that matter, how do you think people rested or WENT TO THE BATHROOM.
The squatting movement itself is PRIMAL. Our bodies were meant to squat, and SQUAT DEEP.

An exercise program must be approached over a period of weeks and months, not days. The reality is that there is no quick fix, no easy way, no magic weight loss plan, no secret cellulite formula. There is only the law of the farm. You will reap what you sow. In reality, you will reap what you sow and care for. If you are consistent and diligent with both diet and exercise, you will eventually see results. However, remember, much like fertilizer and water, diet and exercise go together.
The look that most people would describe as "toned" is ALWAYS a result of building muscle (or keeping the muscle you've got!) and losing fat...PERIOD. If you don't have muscle mass, you can lose fat but you'll just be a smaller version of what you are right now.
