Who knew! All about a proper squat

Thursday, January 24, 2013

1. I assume a wide stance
2. I bend my knees a bit
3. Straighten my spine, keep it as vertical as possible
4. I dig my heels in; ground them! I am very angry
5. Jut my butt out, I mean way out. Then THRUST it up toward the ceiling. Not a pretty sight, but, hell, boys, you'll get over it.
6. Throw my chin out ahead of my nose
7. My spine is straight as possible. My stance is very wide
8. Now I lower my buttocks to (at least) below my knees
9. Very slowly, using my legs, with spine straight, I raise myself to standing position and shake it out

Next I'll work toward squatting on my haunches, then a deadlift. I hurt my back so I won't try this again today

    Ugh, tried it and had a lot of knee pain. I can get to 90 degrees but not to butt below knees without that pain. Guess I'll just keep doing what I'm able to.

    Thanks for this post! I think I was doing it a bit wrong.

Also, thanks for letting us in on the secret :

"Squats in a dress and high heels is WRONG!" That picture is priceless!!

Happy Days!
