Squatting in its many variations and forms is a movement that humans must perform many times daily. What we see in human development is that as toddlers and young children, we squat with impeccable form and use this movement to safely achieve low positions, lower loads to the ground and pick items up off the ground. At some point as we age, most humans stop squatting correctly. Squatting incorrectly can cause a myriad of different musculoskeletal injuries and pain and is compounded when people try to use squatting incorrectly as part of their workout or fitness regimen.
Squatting correctly has tremendous benefits. It can prolong independence as we age as it will strengthen the lower back, hips and thighs in a fashion that suits human biomechanics perfectly. Squatting well allows mothers to pick up their children safely, grandmothers to continue gardening, grandfathers to get on and off the toilet and fathers to look on the bottom shelf of the fridge.
Until now, there was no product on the market that could help guide the masses on how to again perform this movement correctly. It is argued that not everyone will squat the same given the idiosyncrasies of each individuals build. This is true and is why The SquatGuide™ is customizable. There are squatting guidelines by which this product is designed that can help everyone develop an maintain safe and efficient form.
