I didn't want to start a brand new thread for this but Anthony (or anyone else who subscribes):
I'm pretty interested in subscribing to the Crossfit Journal - it looks like a great publication. Are there specific back issues that you would recommend to PLers, or high-school coaches, or just issues that you think are particularly good?
I can't afford to get all of them even though I'd like to, but I'd like your input. Thanks.
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
