squatting position and stand right back up. Doing this should look like you’re sitting on a

stool (or toilet) and then standing up. Once this has been mastered, you can practice

with free weights and ultimately move on to the barbell. Now the exact type of barbell

squat that’s best for you depends on your overall health condition, strength, and

body and mind become one. You will feel accomplished knowing that you were able to

execute this exercise. It will also improve your self appearance, therefore, improving

your self-esteem as well.


The Squat Rack Story

“Skinny guy walked into a gym and asked the owner for the best supplement for gaining

muscle mass. The gym owner pointed to the squat rack. The skinny guy didn’t

understand, left the gym, and stayed skinny. Another skinny guy walked into the gym

the next day and asked the same question. The gym owner gave him the same

answer. A third guy came in and went straight to the squat rack and started squatting.

He got very good at it and became very strong and muscular too. Moral of the story:

When the gym owner or personal trainer points to the squat rack, pay attention.”

The barbell squat is just like life. It’s all about standing back up after something hefty

takes you down. When you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, squat!

Then continue to eat, sleep, squat, and repeat…
