how low can you go?

Is all the turkey and gravy from yesterday's Thanksgiving festivities still weighing you down? Good! Use that extra pound or two to sit just a little bit lower in this DEEP SQUAT - a move you should be doing every day.

  • WHY:
  • The deep squat is a safe and effective exercise if done correctly that will help maintain your hip flexion.
  • Deep squatting is a functional movement that humans were designed to perform, therefore it is essential for sustaining mobility in the lower back and hips.
  • However, if you do not perform the deep squat regularly it will become increasingly challenging..."if you don't use it, you will lose it!"
  • Deep squatting daily can help prevent hip surgeries in the future by keeping your hips agile.

  • HOW TO DO IT:
    • Squat as far down as you can flat footed.
    • Watch rounding of the lower back.
    • For increasing flexibility, lay on back and pull knees into the chest. This is essentially a deep squat in the supine position.
    • Continue to practice.
