What Is the 'Asian Squat' and Why Can't Everyone Do It?

What Is the 'Asian Squat' and Why Can't Everyone Do It? | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

All the way down! Not on your toes!

 

“The squat is a great model for a multi-segmental movement pattern,” [Bryan] Ausinheiler rattled off at the beginning of our phone call. Uh, what does that mean? “The squat is a triple flexion movement. You’ve got bending at the hips, knees, and ankle, so you have to fold everything up underneath you.” There’s a lot going on.


Via Peter Mellow
Donovan Baldwin's insight:

Good exercise and good for digestive health, according to some experts, the so-called "Asian Squat", nearly impossible for a great many Americans (like me), is quite common in other cultures.

Exercise is medicine: a call to action for physicians to assess and prescribe exercise: The Physician and Sportsmedicine: Vol 43, No 1

Exercise is medicine: a call to action for physicians to assess and prescribe exercise: The Physician and Sportsmedicine: Vol 43, No 1 | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
Engaging in regular physical activity is one of the major determinants of health. Studies have demonstrated the benefits of exercise in the treatment and prevention of most every common medical problem seen today. It is clear that patients who engage in an active and fit way of life, live longer, healthier, and better lives. For these reasons, every patient should be asked about exercise at every visit using an exercise vital sign (EVS) and, when needed, provided with an exercise prescription that encourages them to get 150 minutes or more moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Physicians have an obligation to assess each patients exercise habits and inform them of the risks of being sedentary. Such an approach is critical to help stem the rising tide of deaths around the world due to noncommunicable diseases, which are so closely associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

Carbohydrates: Natural Carbohydrate Foods vs. Refined Carbs

Carbohydrates: Natural Carbohydrate Foods vs. Refined Carbs | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
Are carbohydrates good or bad? The short answer is that they are both. Fortunately, it’s easy separate the good carbs from the bad carbs.
Donovan Baldwin's insight:

"Carbs" get a bad rap. Diet "gurus" have lumped all carbs into one word, normally said with a sneer in their voice. In truth, there ARE good carbs and bad carbs. Yes, you should avoid the bad ones for health and weight management. However, the right carbs can provide you with energy, and nutrients necessary for health, fitness, AND weight management.
