Why you should squat

Today in this episode we discuss squats.   I think doing a squat is one of the most important exercises you can do.   I am a very big fan of squats, and often it is the first exercise I discuss with my clients.

Do you know that squatting is one of the most natural movement patterns of the human body?   A great example is when you need to pick up something off the ground.   Normally, you would squat.   Unfortunately, modern times often find us sitting a lot, which actually inhibits and tightens the muscles that enable a full range of motion and the muscle balance we need to correctly complete squats.

I encourage you to listen to the full episode as we will discuss the various elements of this important exercise.  We’ll discuss the benefits of doing a squat as well as the various types of squats.   Our discussion will also focus on the key elements of proper form to ensure you use the right muscles and avoid injury.

Everyone’s squat may look slightly different, but in the end you will want to find the good form that works with your body. It is difficult to teach the squat in an audio format. In the Forever Fitness Program you will have access to a personal trainer online to help you learn form on the squat and many other exercises.
