Know Squat

Do you know squat? Why should you squat? Because you can, and if you can’t then you need to learn to. But why? The squat is the most basic and natural human movement. Functional by design. It is in the bottom position your intended sitting posture. We invented the chair which has led to the worlds decrepitude and back problems. This is why there are becoming more and more standing office desk. They even have desks now with the treadmill built right into it to eliminate sitting and force walking. The squat helps to develop your hips, powerful hips are a hallmark of an athlete. Weak glutes and hamstrings though are often the cause of a bad squat. But you should be using every muscle in your body to perform a squat correctly. Some people may say that squatting is dangerous. Simply ask them “how do they get off the toilet then?” How do you get better at squats? Do more squats!
