365 Ways #43–Squats

#43–You don’t know squat! But you should. One of the 7 primal patterns, squatting was essential for survival when we were cavemen and women. And while evolution has developed our Blackberry pattern such that many of us have a thenar eminence the size of our bicep, our squatting skills have suffered in kind. Because of this, over 80% of people will endure an episode of back pain in his or her lifetime. So Squat! It’s good for your back. It’s good for your knees. The only thing it’s not good for is your orthopedic surgeon’s bank account.
