Here’s a sobering thought…
Do you want assistance on the toilet?
Over time, you may need it if you stop squatting.
If you have sore knees, you can still do some form of squatting to build and maintain the necessary leg strength to age gracefully.
Here are two options:
- Simply modify the depth that you squat. You don’t necessarily be ‘@ss to grass’ to benefit from the squat. Go the the depth you can that doesn’t irritate your knees.
- Alternatively, do a wall sit. Again you can modify depth if needed.
Squatting is one of the MOST functional movements.
If you stop squatting, over time you’ll lose the muscles that allow for independence, which means you’ll likely need assistance in the bathroom.
