Very true. I know I start to sound like a broken record sometimes, but the true foundation of my fitness is hindu squats. Were it not for my laserlike focus on them for a good six months or so in my fitness honeymoon stage, I would almost certainly not have advanced as much and as quickly as I did. In a lot of ways they are a perfect exercise. They taught me ho to breath, they gave me the ability to run, pull and push a car with guys who squatted and deadlifted (I did not at the time) and keep up with them, not to mention be the envy of most people in any martial arts/kickboxing school I joined. So I would heartily recommend doing lots of hindu squats to anyone who wanted to improve their athleticism.

I have been doing normal air squats and I dont think I have every done a Hindu Squat. I will have to YouTube it. I need a goal I want to be better at body weight because I know as years go by my body will be in even more pain then now. I am hoping that the lack of 5-6x a week heavy lifting will reduce the joint pain and over training my CNS is fried as of now and its time to revamp my idea of "fit".

Hindu squats are unique because you deliberately come off your heels at the bottom, so you are on the balls of your feet and your knees go past your toes (this is VERY good for your knees when done without much of an added load - a weight vest would still be fine), and you drive your heels back into the ground on your way back up. Optionally, you can stay on the balls of your feet to really work your calves/ankles. Also you are supposed to do them quickly, like one rep per second, if possible.

Though it might feel funny for the first few reps, but working up to high reps of these will improve the following:

1) Balance and stability,
2) Oxygen efficiency,
3) Explosiveness,
4) Ability to land a jump, even from great height,
5) Muscular endurance in the quads, calves, ankles, upper back and especially the sacrolumbar region where you can expect to feel a remarkable burn once you are doing long enough sets.

And when you put all this together, you get the added benefit of being a better runner without ever running. I went from running NEVER to doing 12K (broken into 6 intervals with a short rest between) with a running group and the only person I did not outrun was the group leader - I did not try to out of politeness. I might have been able to... I don't know for sure.

But that's the fun part about joining a running club. You go and run with the fastest people there, and either you get toasted or you decimate them. It's kind of like an initiation.

In college we would always take the freshman for the first run at a pace that was just fast enough that they could still have a conversation. It was our way of judging the kind of fitness level they were in at the end of the summer.

Nice! And then either they can barely string along a sentence (and probably get razzed) or they complain about moving so slow! :lol:

Nobody ever complained about moving slow while I was there. Generally it was teammates that thought they were on my level complaining that I was running too fast in the workouts.
