“Regardless of what the question is, the answer is to squat.” Greg Glassman, Founder & CEO CrossFit Inc.
The squat is the most basic fundamental movement in the world.
It is in our DNA.
When we talk about functional movements this is always number one movement we (should) think about. The squat is not only essential for a long healthy life but also the first (and maybe only) requirement for elite athleticism. Keep in mind that this is how we were meant to sit and how most of the world still sits, not in chairs but in a squat.
It doesn’t get more basic than this! If you can squat well, everything else will fall in line. Squat well and often.
