Strengthens your Pelvic floor
Western culture and not ever doing squats can be a contributing factor to a weak/tight pelvic floor. Squat more and start encouraging your pelvic floor to do it’s thing as nature intended.
Counteracts the position of sitting
We all sit WAY too much and sometimes it can’t be helped. If you work in an office environment, you may have to sit at your desk for 7 hours a day. Squatting more is going to help encourage the movement we lose when we just sit for hours on end.
Tip: when you do have to sit on a chair, sit up straight, near the front edge of the chair, on your Ischial Tuberosities or ‘sit bones’, not curled under with your weight down through your tailbone.
It’s also important to mention here that all of the above will only be achieved if you’re squatting correctly. We’ve a video to help with that ;-)
