People Crouching | Squatting

Crouching, also referred to as squatting, is a position in which the weight of the body is on the feet, but the legs are bent, either fully or partially. The quality of the squat can vary greatly, in which one, both, or neither of the heels touch the ground and the legs can be touching each other or spread far apart. Squatting is an instinctive position among children, especially toddlers, and can also be done in combination with a kneel, in which one knee is bent and touching the ground, and the other remains in a squatting position.

Why do I have knee pain when crouching?

The location of the pain depends on the cause. Some possible causes to knee pain may be patellofemoral syndrome, patella tendonitis, osteoarthritis, injury or trauma to the knee, iliotibial band (IT-band) syndrome, or bacterial joint inflammation. If this pain persists reach out to a medical professional.

What is crouching?

Crouching is a position where the upper body is brought forward and down and supported over bent knees. People and animals crouch to avoid detection or as a means of defense.

How much should you squat?

How much you can squat is greatly dependent on gender and weight. According to reference standards published by ExRx.net, to estimate a probable one-rep max squat weight, an untrained 165 pound man can squat 110 pounds, a novice 205 pounds, an intermediate 250 pounds, and an advanced lifter can squat 340 pounds. A woman who weighs 114 pounds with no lifting experience may be able to squat 55 pounds, and a novice lifter 100 pounds, an intermediate 115 pounds, and an advanced lifter can squat 150 pounds.
