If you had to pick only 3 exercises what would they be and why?
Squats-=It is the foundation and the greatest of all.
Squat exercises improve your circulation, so that you can forget about the cellulite!
Benefits of squats also include improved posture. Squats are a great way not only to improve your posture, but also build better balance. The balance that you need to do them will help to sit, stand and walk tall and straight, just like a beauty queen.
Chest press-Its important to strengthen your chest for a number of reason, it helps keep your upper-body muscles in balance, which improves your posture . “These two things decrease stress and tension on your muscles and bones. A strong chest also helps you do the things you need to do every day, because those pec muscles add power to your shoulders and arms.
