Take a squat for your sit down.

I remember when a deep squat like this was SO far off my movement menu. My knees just didn’t like it but you know what the body has an affinity for change and you put your mind to something then you can shapeshift your body 10000%.

Deep squat is all about getting your ankle, knee and hip/back flexibility in check. I worked on this for quite some years via a dedicated Pilates practice. A snapped ACL knee ligament injury was a huge problemo for me for a while but with a sprinkle of dedicated focus, stretching and strengthening my ankles, knees and hips with passionate commitment the deep squat slowly came about.

Some tips for practicing the deep squat

  • Stack up some cushions or layers of clothing and let you heels rest on them if your feet stay lifted in the squat. NEVER force your feet to the ground- look after those achilles tendon
  • Stretch your calves and achilles tendon regularly, every day is recommended
  • Do knee strengthening exercises to prep the knee for the high flexion (when your knee is very bent essentially in the squat)
  • Do ankle strengthening exercises like heel lifts
  • Practice deepening your squat in stages over time so gradually you can sink deeper and deeper into your hips

Your body CAN do anything that you want it to do- just got to believe and do the movement work…
