Health experts agree that we are spending way too much time on our backsides. Prolonged sitting and the sedentary lifestyle that goes along with it has been linked to heart disease and a decreased range of mobility.
To counteract this problem, the health conscious got on their own two feet, with standing desks taking over offices and fitness trackers giving us kudos for standing regularly throughout the day.
However, some experts claim we should embrace squatting instead, and that doing so may counteract the negative health effects that both sitting and standing can cause. Squatting is actually quite old; so old, in fact, that it’s often considered primitive. To clarify, we’re not talking about the fitness type of squatting in which we bang out multiple reps at the gym. Those exercises are good for building leg and butt strength, but they’re not the same as the deep squatting movement that many of us gave up when we left childhood.
