Mini-Goal: Flat-Footed Squat Achieved

Posted Apr 10 2011 8:16pm

I wrote the other week about working on a deep, barefoot flat-footed squat.  My goal was to be able to hold this position for one minute (I could only hold it a second or two to start).  Earlier today, I achieved the one-minute goal.

I am surprised I could make so much progress in a week and a half.  The real key for me was this video , and also rereading Gray Cook's discussion of the squat in his book, "Athletic Body in Balance".

Even though I achieved my goal, the squat still doesn't feel very comfortable yet.  My knees and feet still tend to cave in, so I need to work on my flexibility.  I will continue to work on this through April and see how much more progress I can make.
