Regular bodyweight squats mostly works the hamstrings and glutes also building flexibility, while on the other hand hindu squats focus more on the quadriceps, giving more flexibility to the knees. The hindu squat has a rhythm to it while the regular squat exercise use the same technique as when doing weighted squats.
The Hindu squat is a multijoint, or compound, exercise. Compound exercises work more than one muscle at a time, which leads to increased muscle fiber recruitment. During a Hindu squat, the glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, abs and shoulders work simultaneously. This is good news for weight loss because muscle is metabolically active tissue.
Does Hindu Squats create mass or just strenth? It was recommended to me that since I'm not flexible enough to do Deads, that instead of doin stiff lef deads, I should do Hindu squats. My goal is to gain mass, so will Hindu squats accomplish this for me. By the way I have ordered "Relax into Stretch" so I will soon be able to do Deads correctly
Bodyweight Squats vs Hindu Squats. In Bodyweight Mastery by admin June 20, 2012 2 Comments. In this article we’re going to discuss bodyweight squats vs hindu squats and which is better. As with a lot of my answers the answer here is it depends on what your goals are.
Hindu Push-Ups . So now you’ve learned how to hindu squats. Let’s pair it up with the hindu push-ups to form a strong superset circuit.. In case you don’t know, a superset is when you perform two exercises consecutively without resting (or with minimal rest). The hindu push-up is a completely underrated exercise in my opinion.
I won't comment on the hindu squats not having done them but I can comment on the pushups. Before playing around with weights I did lots of pushups every single day for 9 months (I think I missed 3 days in that time actually) and it is more stamina than anything else.

Instead I just worked on doing more reps each week. The last three months I still did the squats and bridging every day, but I performed the Hindu push-ups and a few other push-up variations I learned from Matt every other day. Some days I'd go for a personal best, others I'd just do a minimum of 250 Hindu pushups and 500 squats.
Even though I was dieting at the time to lose fat, I never lost any muscle during my combat conditioning experiment. Of course, my strength and endurance in these movements went up dramatically. The first two months of my experiment I did Hindu pushups, Hindu squats, and bridging everyday, but I never trained to failure.
