“The bamboo that bends is stronger than the oak that resists.”
Everything lies in the basics. The Deep Squat is yet another classic example. In order to develop movement complexity, first, we need the groundwork i.e. mobility, ROM (Range Of Motion), joint stability, plasticity, and strength.
The Deep Squat holds many benefits-
- Addressing deficits in the hips, knees and ankles
- Promotes better posture
- Preparatory exercise for greater movement complexity
- Improves digestion
The list goes on…

How to get started:
- Allocate a place/time in the day that you can dedicate to your practice without interruption.
- Self-Diagnostic – Assess your form. Recognize any deficits in terms of ROM.
- Progressions – Safeguarding your training through incremental changes i.e. establish your base-line (how long you can hold for without pain) and gradually build up to 30 minutes with correct form.
- If at any point you experience pain, stop! Take a day. Take two. The journey is AS important as the destination.
You may initially feel pins and needles, not to mention some discomfort. Over time we’ll guide you to perfect your Deep Squat.
The challenge entails thirty consecutive days of squatting thirty minutes per day.
