Squatember is HERE.

Yesterday we announced some fairly big news – that the entire month of September is (air) Squatember. You can read all about it here. 

Squatember will consist of a few things. First, we will do the air squat in 1-2 workouts each week. In addition, we will do some for of the air squat in warm-ups each day.

Finally, we’ll also post articles on this beautiful movement that informs us so much of a person’s ability to move and control their own body. 

Today’s article is the original squat article written by Greg Glassman himself – Squat Clinic from December of 2002. 

“The squat is essential to your well-being. The squat can both greatly improve your athleticism and keep your hips, back, and knees sound and functioning in your senior years.”

This article highlights the points of performance one should strive for in their air squat and photographs some of the most common squat faults you will see. Check it out!
