My last blog talked about the health benefits to squatting. If you haven't had the chance to go over it, here is the link to it. That way I don't have to bore you if you really don't want to know.
Today I just wanted to demonstrate the typical squats you will see performed in different workouts and just a couple of little tips on setting yourself up for your squat, which you will find in the first video. So how about we get started???
Give me a second and think about movements you do during your everyday living activities that mimic the squat.
Did you come up with, sitting down and standing up? Or how about picking something up off of the ground or low shelf? These are just some of the movements that mimic the squat, of course when done properly. The unfortunate thing that is happening is that we are seeing more people with lower back pain and shoulder issues due to prolonged sitting at desk or cars and always typing on their computers or phones, and people are picking things off of the floor by hinging instead of squatting.
Since I like to keep things short I am just going to give you three reasons why squatting is beneficial to your health.
Squatting is a great movement to add to your workout routine and there are so many different variations of the movement. Start off light, find one that you are comfortable with and use that as your main squat, use proper form, and play with the other variations once in a while. The most important thing is to be comfortable with the movement and give it your best effort!
Hi guys!! Welcome to my thoughts and just some health information that I hope you can use! Let me just state this now. I am not a writer, English major, or even a blogger, so there will be mistakes in here.
