We want to teach every kid in Seattle to squat!
Why is it important to learn how to do a good squat?
The squat is a basic movement that we perform our entire lives. The squat precedes walking in human movement. Picture a toddler that has learned to stand and squats down to play with toys. Up/down up/down, they do it all day. For us coaches it’s a beautiful sight and I saw it today in the gym from a 19 month old.
There is one big reason to squat – it helps counteract all that sitting we do. And makes us:
- jump higher
- improves bone density in all age groups
