The goblet squat is a variation of squats that builds muscles in the legs, in particular. It places special focus on the quads. This is a fundamental exercise that must be included in routine exercises irrespective of the fitness goals. 

It is extremely beneficial for hip muscles, calves, hamstrings, abs, glutes, and lower back. It can develop exceptional strength and power in your body. It holds the ability to crush calories, strengthen the core, prevent injuries, and boost athletic ability. 

There are several variations of squats that can be performed with different weights and resistance bands or simply with your body weight. Wide-legged squat which involves taking a wider stance, sumo squats, barbell squat, dumbbell squat, squat pulse, etc., are all types of squats that keep adding challenge to your routine.
