Move better


If you’ve trained with me you know I’ll randomly drop into the bottom of squat while holding a conversation, grab a pvc pipe, do some lunges , I try to move and stay mobile, instead of just sitting.

A common misconception I hear often is that squats are bad for the knees, squatting low is bad for the knees, heavy squats are bad for the knees, etc.

The truth is, sitting at a desk for 8 hours every day will do more damage to your knees than any squat ever will, and if your knees hurt when you attempt to squat it is more than likely that same lack of activity or improper form is the reason why it hurts.

If this isn’t a comfortable position for you to be in, worry less about bicep curls and more about making it a comfortable position to be in.
