Crouch Down

crouch down


To crouch down is a natural movement. It’s a resting position in Asia but not in the West - since many people simply stop doing it at some point when growing up. Start in a standing position, squat down naturally, start gentle and take it easy if you are not used to it. Use a chair or wall for support in the beginning. Try to find a comfortable position, move your body a little in the position, it’s usually more convenient than trying to sit totally still. Get up when you feel you have been squatting long enough. Repeat.


Crouch down as often as possible in your daily life to increase your mobility throughout the body. The exercise is good for preventing pain in your back, knees, ankles and hips and improves your posture.


Crouch down with your heels raised in the beginning, the long-term goal is to be able to squat with your heels on the floor.
