Something we did with ease as a child.

Squatting up and down now becomes a massive challenge for most humans. Life has got in the way, sit in a car to work, sit at a desk all day, sit in a car to the gym, set on a spin bike as our form of exercise and then sit on the sofa all night. Our body becomes so imbalanced that the most basic of tasks becomes a problem.

However we can generally get away without injuring ourselves with this until we add Instagram, we sit at home on our sofa, scrolling through our phones, we see all these attractive people, big weights on their back and squatting super low. We think we can replicate this and we will look the same. This is where the injuries come in.

Increasing the intensity of something, especially by loading up with weight amplifies any pre-existing problems, maybe more so on the squat than any other move with everything from your ankles, knees, hips, spinal and shoulder strength and mobility all coming into play. We will do a video on how to correct any pre-existing problems that prevent a good squat...

but for today watch the video and enjoy on where to start when you first put a weight on your back and squat.
