Squats question.

This is probably a stupid question, but I really do not know. When doing squats, does it help tone your hips as well? When I do squats, I can really feel it working my calfs through my thighs, but I was just wondering if it also helped with hips. Thanks.

It's known as a great leg and glute exercise. It certainly helps with flexibility of the hip though.

squats- the king of all weightlifing execises

Squats are more than just the perfect quad exercise. In addition to stressing the front thighs, they actually work a variety of major muscles throughout your entire body, including the glutes, hamstrings, abdominals and lower-back muscles. This is why squats are considered by many to be the king of all weightlifting exercises.

Just make sure that your knees never go past your toes during the squat and it's best not to let your thighs go below a 90 degree angle w/ the rest of your leg. Proper form is key to not getting injured and creating gorgeous muscle!!!
