Well, let’s answer that question with another question. Why should we learn how to drive before getting on the highway?
Because if you’re going to do something essential to life, you should do it well and know the basics. You’re going to sit down and stand up a lot. The squat is inarguably more essential than driving a car.
Not learning and practicing the squat is like driving without turn signals or brake lights….or a driver’s license.
But what about my knees? I’ve seen on facebook that squatting is bad for the knees.”
Squatting is not bad for your knees. Squatting with poor form or not squatting at all is terrible for your knees.
Trust us, learn to squat, practice it often.
