    Squatting To A Million - Video Updates

    I'm squatting one million pounds for disaster relief. Raised about $1400 so far.

    After 14 consecutive days of squatting, I've completed 152,455lbs so far. I'm trying to update frequently on my blog, but I'll post some videos here as well.

    Today I did some squatting w. chains - first time in years.

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Thanks guys - it's all about raising awareness and $$ for a good cause. I hit the quarter-million mark with that last session. Just have to stay smart and healthy and it should go well (knock on wood).
