[CAN YOU DO IT?] Catcher squat

A large research study showed people who can get up and down from the floor without using their hands lived an average of 8-10 years longer!

But not only that they also had a longer “Health Span”

Meaning, they also experienced 8-10 years more of being “healthier, more functional, & they lived independently for longer.

The message is being able to get up and down from the floor is pretty important!

Not only for the physical act that is an indicator of mobility, strength, balance, and “Movement IQ” as we like to call it.

But more importantly, for the better choices & habits that people who are functional and fit make that causes the longer life span and better health.

Said differently the “Life Style Choices” that make living a longer Healthy Active Life Possible

So lets believe in ourselves and make great choices in 2023!

But start by seeing if you can do this Challenge & future Challenges!

Let’s work on your ability to “Get Up & Down” from the floor! Lets get you in that CAPABLE & HEALTHY category if you aren’t headed that way already!

For this challenge see if you can comfortably hold this position for one to several minutes.

It that’s easy then see if you can rise to standing and then back to the “Catcher Squat” ten times.

Work towards more in time!

We will have more coming in the future so that getting up and down from the floor is not anxiety producing but rather makes you think “Seriously that’s Piece of Cake!”

Fortunately, mobility can be easily improved with a little Sweat Equity!
