SQUATS ARE NOT BAD FOR YOU!!

Today, I had yet another person tell me they don’t do squats because they have bad knees. My initial reaction was to point out that if they had been doing squats all along they probably wouldn’t have bad knees. (She was a runner btw).

Squats are NOT bad for you. They aren’t bad for your back. They aren’t bad for your knees. They aren’t bad for your hips. If done incorrectly YES they can be very bad for you. Then again water is key to a happy healthy life and if you drink too much too fast it’ll kill you.

Ok so we’ve learned everyone should do squats whether it’s to prevent knee or back injury or to recover from knee or back injury. (After injury always check with a Dr. before performing any exercise!)

Here are simple articles to help everyone understand!
