Squatting vs Sitting

My client Jon sent this to me today. I thought I’d share it with you since I found it so interesting. I find that many people still have a stigma, a negative reaction to the idea of doing squats.

But when I explain to them that 1. no they are not bad for your knees 2. we will do them in a modified ROM if need be 3. you already do them many times a day in life – getting up and down from a chair, in and out of a car, etc., they relax.

I’ve been teaching squats for 30+ years I add, and it isn’t long before they get excited at how well they’re doing them and how much it is helping their walking, running, skiing, everything. This excites me! Wow, I always think, the body still amazes me how quickly it adapts.

I hope you take a minute to read it. Thanks and enjoy!
