Barbell Squat or Barbell Back Squat is a strength gaining exercise that lets you lift and balance a considerable amount of load, thereby working out your glutes, calves, and other leg muscles. When performing the squat, you will also use your back muscles to balance the load on your shoulders so that you can do the lift safely.
