E58 - Squats - No Longer The Golden Exercise

Exercise Is Health

Release Date: 02/06/2019

This week on the Exercise Is Health podcast, Julie and Charlie discuss what has long been considered the golden exercise in the fitness industry--squats--and why it is time for this exercise to be de-throned, or at least reconsidered.  They discuss what they see as some of the biggest issues with squatting, why so many people have difficulty squating, the risks of squatting even if your body is not built for it, and when and why squatting would be appropriate for you to add into your workouts.  Check out all of the details in this week's episode!

In this episode, Julie and Charlie reference a few different concepts originally brought to them by the Resistance Training Specialist™ (RTS™) program, including these videos below produced by Tom Purvis:
