This may come as a surprise but doing squats actually makes use of your core. This means that if you do enough squats you will be engaging your core. Having a strong core is extremely beneficial to your overall health. You see with a strong core you are able to do everyday movements such as bending, turning, and even just standing easily. A weak core has a big impact on your balance and lower back.
