Workout of the Day

Why do we squat below parallel?

*Heads up – Tomorrow is the Yankee Swap!

It’s not just because coach told you to. There’s an actual reason. Actually, there are a few good ones.

It’s natural. Look at babies and millions of people around the world. Our bodies are designed to squat, so why not take full advantage of it.

It’s in the hips. When you squat below parallel, it’s the hips that absorb the load and redirect the movement back up. That takes the load off of your knees (not the case if you do partial squats). Let the glutes and hamstrings do the work. They can take it.

You can’t lift as much. Wait…what?! If you load up 760 pounds on the bar and partial squat it, that’s putting a lot of stress on your spine that it probably won’t be able to handle. If you can’t squat it below parallel, it shouldn’t be on your back.

By the way, what does ‘below parallel’ mean? It’s when your hip crease goes below the top of your knee. When we ask you to “go lower”, remember, it’s for your own good.

Last night was the last Yoga session of 2014. We will continue with Yoga in 2015 and hope to see many new faces. It’s not just for ladies. We had five guys last night, and you could see an improvement in their mobility right away. Just ask Darrell.

Deck of Death

  • Hearts = Burpees
  • Diamonds = Situps
  • Clubs = Pullups
  • Spades = Squats
  • Jokers = 500m row

Start by drawing the top card and do that many reps of the suit. For example, if you draw the 9 of Hearts, you’re doing 9 burpees. Face cards are all worth 10. The goal is to get through the whole deck as fast as you can. There is a 25min time cap.
