I think everyone has heard me say this at least once. The best squatter in the world is a 3 yr old. They drop straight down, chest up, feet flat, and they can sit there all day long. This is how we are designed to sit. 3 yr olds haven’t spent half of their life sitting in a chair. Starting in grade school, increasing with the ability to drive a car, and then to office jobs- we spend a majority of our life sitting on our butts in a chair. The abuse our posterior chain takes over time takes a long time to repair. Many of our back, hip, and knee pain come from the amount of time that we spend sitting on our bum. The repair and re-activation process is slowed when you spend 3 hours a day sitting and you struggle to spend 5 minutes squatting. So what’s the jest of this: sit less- mobility is life – squat more! Here is a goal everyone can do- squat every time you do something different throughout the day. Get up and cook breakfast- squat, brush your teeth- squat, get out of your car- squat, walk the dog – squat. You should be able to squat well(feet flat, chest up, back flat, knees in line with toes) any time of the day.
