THE ASIAN SQUAT
The Asian squat by many considered dangerous and damaging for the knees.
Try to tell that to this guy and to the population of Asia, which must have the highest level of knee problems in the world, considering that they squat like this all day, to eat, to talk, to rest and yes to use the bathroom.
The Asian squat differ from the regular squat, mainly by how far low your body goes, all the way to were your thighs are touching your calves, and your feet are flat on the ground, you want your torso up-right, you hips under your shoulders and a nice natural spine curvature.
Unfortunately not everyone is limber enough to get that low and to get there without losing they spine’s curvature, you can try this at home or at the gym:
grab a hold of a door post and use it to balance yourself while you are lowering your body into the squat, go as low as you body will let you and then hold that for few seconds.
Do this everyday and try to get lower each time until you are able to look like the guy in the picture.
Your body will thank you and your Clean, Snatch and Front Squat will dramatically improve.
