The squat is an essential movement in CrossFit, as well as your everyday life.
Due to restrictive mobility in the hips or ankles caused by sitting for extended periods of time, we are becoming a society that doesn’t know how to do a proper squat. If you watch a young child, they can do a nearly perfect squat on command. However, as we grow, we lose that ability. Unfortunately, most of us just don’t continue practicing it enough.
