Freestyle: (share something interesting we haven’t covered) I am the 7th child out of 8 children. Grew up in the Philippines, in a house with a dirt first floor, without plumbing or electricity! Immigrated with my family to Guam at age 12, completed my associate degree in nursing there. My hubby, 2 kids, and I moved to Washington in 1990. Lived in Germany for 3 1/2 years and traveled around Europe then returned in 2003. Finally went back to school and completed my BSN and MN from UW. My husband, daughter, and son are all in the Army. I currently work at Harrison. We are expecting our first grandchild!
The basic bodyweight squat is the most fundamental exercise you will ever do.
Every good fitness program should include squatting in many different forms. Squats can be used to develop strength, mobility, balance, coordination, endurance and stamina depending on how they are programmed.
Western society has minimized the importance of squatting and some in the fitness and medical communities have gone as far as to declare that squatting, especially below parallel is dangerous. Nothing could be further from the truth. Around the world, billions of people spend a great deal of time every day in a full squat position. Squatting is an essential daily movement. You can’t get onto and off of a toilet without performing a squat.
The danger is not in doing squats, the danger is in doing squats incorrectly.
For a short demonstration on how to perform squats, watch the video below (courtesy of CrossFit.com).
