Human resting positions are a variety of natural postures that humans perform to achieve a state of increased calmness. Ranging from lying down, kneeling, squatting, and sitting, resting positions are proven to decrease muscle tension, slow heart rates, lower blood pressure, and promote other related health benefits. As both formal and informal states, resting positions can help humans cope with stress, pain, anxiety, anger, and depression and are often naturally integrated into a day to day lives. Resting positions are physical responses that lessen the stresses that we place on our bodies by actively standing upright, walking, and exercising.

Crouching - Men (Front)

Crouching is used to make one’s self smaller to hide, go under an object, or to fit in a small space. People crouch by folding their knees and bending their back forward. People can walk in a crouch if they are trying to sneak. Crouching can be used in hide and seek to be less detectable by other players.
