I know squat!
I am at a loss for words to describe how I feel about squat. 8)). Squat is one of the first movements we do as toddlers and we do it so beautifully. Children even perform squats beyond 90 degree flexion and rise up from that deep squat position with little effort. And they can do it on sand in a sandbox with a plastic shovel and bucket their hands.
Somehow something called life happens where we forget how to perform functional movements like the squat and have to be retaught the movement. It’s always a joy when I am able to teach someone how to perform a squat and so see their face when all the components of the squat fall into place for them and they feel the fullness of that complex yet simple movement.
Thanks for a great question!
