You will notice that the values above are impressively high. The downside of this is that you will definitely not be doing an hour of squats, unless you are a professional athlete – and even then you would be severely sore for many days. Nevertheless, squats burn a high amount of energy, especially when done correctly. This involves keeping your back straight and at a roughly 45-degree angle to the floor at all times during the movement. You should also focus your gaze at a point on the floor that allows your neck to form a straight line with your back. Finally, make sure that you complete every squat fully, with your knees ending up at right angles.
