Babies all squat and pretty much all do it with perfect form. As we grow we lose the ability because we stop doing it. Ironically for this thread, squatting is one of the most basic natural movements a human can do. Its as natural as walking on 2 legs.
long femurs is pussy code for “it’s hard so I don’t like it”. Leverages may make it to where as a bodybuilder it doesn’t hit the muscles you want it to, but not being able to squat because of leverages is BS in my book. You can’t squat because you don’t have the mobility or you lack the will.[/quote]
Didnt know that babies squat all they long with a barbell on their backs…
Not saying that squatting with a barbell is bad, but dont think it is an natural excercise. Agree that squatting as a motion is natural, just not with a barbell on your back. I squat btw, but I suck hard at it.
With weight and a loaded spine (relative to their strength), yes. It’s how they pick up things.[/quote]
Would not that be more like a deadlift with a squat stance?
no. it would be similar to a goblet squat, but not dissimilar from a standard squat. The motion is a squat. Go pick up a big sack of potatoes and carry them across the yard.
