We’ve all heard the rumors… Squatting is hard on your knees and absolutely terrible for your back, right?
In fact, I used to be one of those ‘experts’ who swore by this… Well intentioned of course, but poorly informed…
We just finished our annual 30 Day Squat Challenge and I’m so proud of everyone who participated all the way to the end! I’ve been sharing specific exercise videos on Facebook to help fix the most common problems people have…
Here they are all in one place:)
Not only do these exercises help with getting more comfy in your squat, they will also help with any chronic back or hip pain, especially the chronic kind brought on by lots of sitting…
