  • Squats

    I'm probably preaching to the choir, but I just had to say. Squats are one of the most wonderful exercises if done right. I just noticed the other day some nagging back and joint pains that my chiropractor couldn't fix are no longer giving me fits. Coupled with the dietary changes with primal. I feel the best I have in years.
    If I posted this in the wrong area, my apologies.

        I found them underneath a steel bar loaded with a bunch of steel plates.

          I never thought that squats were something that I could do, but this past week has seen me performing tens of level one squats and many Grok squats. My knees are less brittle and crunchy now!

              I don't get round ass from deep squats, but my knees have stopped aching.
              I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

                  I believe that if a person has knee problems from squats, their knees are either already shot or they aren't squatting correctly.

                      There's a ton of videos on the crossfit website, not all youtube videos are created equal.
                      If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

                        And all this time, I thought that big metal cage at the gym was a place for middle-aged balding guys with beer bellies to do bicep curls. You learn something new every day!

                          Only if they're wearing TAP OUT shirts.

                              Yep. I have a partially torn ACL and thought I couldn't do squats because it hurt too badly. Turns out I had bad form. Now I can do them no problem. No pain in my ACL at all. Often, it's a form issue.
