    Squats

    Shop Now
    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!

    My plan for the year (July 23rd 2012-July 23rd 2013):

    Walk to Mordor. I have walked 12.33 miles out of 1779.
    Do Convict Conditioning / balance exercises.
    Eat primally.
    Take a progress picture once a week.
    Don't weigh myself.

    Starting weight: 223
    Current weight: ???
    Goal weight: 145

    Waist measurement 08/03/12: 42 inches and three quarters
    Goal waist measurement: 30 inches

    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.
