    do squats make your hips bigger? please help

    A trainer told me not to do squats because it will make your hips wider. I am not sure what to believe because i see all of these perfect looking women that have small hips and bodies doing squats.Can someone shine some light on this subject.

    Any trainer that tells you not to do the king of exercises is a poorly educated trainer. Squats will make you look better.

    Just do squats. ALWAYS squat.

    The squat will make everything bigger - thighs, waist, hips (proportionately). You won't turn into a freak if you start squatting regularly, if that was your concern. Arnold used to squat heavy and hard, but he never had a 'wide waist'.

    Squats will give your butt and legs a better shape and proportion to each other. It is a key exercise for anyone. You can bet that a woman with a gross flat butt probably doesn't do squats.

    yea this trainer is a jackass. Squats definitely don't make you thicker in the hips other than a nice butt and legs.

    If you're aiming to have the typical Hollywood look, then there are trainers specifically for that purpose and they emphasis not to Squat and Dead-lift... If that is YOUR goal too, then your trainer is right.

    However, if your aim is to look great as well as increase strength, then Squat is the winner.

    It all depends on your goal. I'd never exclude Squat personally.
