If you spent any time in our office you may know that we love to squat! It’s an essential movement that anyone, young or old should be able to perform. Sadly this is a basic human function that many people can no longer do. Squatting variations like barbell back squats and front squats are a favourite among powerlifters, bodybuilders and other athletes for one reason: they work. Not only are they effective for building an insanely strong lower body; they also deliver a number of numerous benefits including increased hormone release and improved flexibility.

So over the next 30 days, the Waverley Central Chiropractic Clinic team want to challenge you to accumulate 10 minutes a day of squats, or as low as you can get if you can’t reach a full depth. That means squatting throughout the day so that when you go to bed you’ve squatted for 10 minutes.

The benefits of the squat are immense; they range from improved posture, a greater range of motion from ankles to shoulder to better elimination.

So please read on to find out how to do the perfect squat, and why you should put aside your pride and make squats a staple of your weekly routine.
