Why can asians squat indefinitely with their heels flat on the ground while Whites/Europeans can only do a stationary squat by balancing on our midfoot?
I tried to do the one on the right, I am physiologically unable to to do it.

      They can also do the seiza very easily which is sitting and balancing directly on your knees, because of years of training and adaptation.

      Try and go for 1h of seiza, your knees will be bust, also its the ankle mobility/achilles' heel stiffness issue.

      this

      This is stupid race pseudoscience (not even pseudo correct) and Asians don't have "short femurs". Besides, it wouldn't be about "short femurs" but rather the ratio of femur length to the lengths of lower legs, which is (mostly) determined by the golden ratio and is consistent across races. I would laugh at you for not understanding this but I think you guys are being genuine, which makes me pity you, and also femur length has nothing to do with deep squatting so this is a moot point. having long femurs doesn't affect being able to deep squat--- it just means you have to lean your torso forward over your knees to balance, which often means butt wink or rounding lower back. Deep squatting has more to do with ankle mobility, and like all mobility it comes from lots of practice. In asian cultures where there is a lot more squatting like when you poop, they're bound to have better mobility. you can improve ankle mobility through soleus stretches

      I'm a white guy who is 5'8 and I can deep squat fine. Whenever I do squats, I do them ass to grass and literally sit down on my heels and hold it there for a few seconds at the bottom of every rep

          this is more absurd race pseudoscience... shut up before you have people thinking your dumb shit and that they can't deep squat. It has more to do with anterversion/retroversion of the hip joints which isn't race dependent, and neither is an advantage or impediment to deep squatting, it just means it has to be done in a different way. Deep squatting is mostly a cultural thing dude, learn your shit before you come on here embarrassing yourself

            nobody invented shit, you can say that the sample sizes were too small to make general assumptions, but if you've ever been to an asian country you'll know its obviously true, I should also mention its true of europeans and asians vs africans, who have longer limbs (on average)

            most popular hypothesis is that europeans and asians are adapted to colder climates , where longer limbs are inferior due to heat loss and higher risk of frostbite, this is seen in all manor of arctic animals, which has shorter limbs/ears/tails for the same reason.

          You're right but the difference is not that big. Most people in the west don't live rural lifestyles and are therefore sedentary and sit in chairs all the time so they don't develop ankle mobility. East Asians work on the floor a lot (for better or for worse I suppose), like my mom used to peel pecans squatted on the floor rather than using a table just out of habit.

      They do have slightly shorter femurs, and hip socket placement might also be a factor.

      This is just anecdotal, but every now an again an untrained DYEL asian joins my olympic lifting club, and they can always deep squat with an upright back. These people have otherwise terrible mobility and stability in the squat position.

      I'm white and I have top tier mobility, but the only way I could get into a squat deep enough for my ass to literally touch the ground would be to do a really heavy overhead squat and let that flex my knees.

          We call it Turkish toilet. Quite comfy, but then again, I'm not fat and as a slav I can squat. Also it's the best position for taking a dump, because in squat position, your pipes straighten up and are unobstructed. Ironically "science" discovered this, and they started selling toilet stools, to lift your legs when sitting on a modern toilet.

    When you're working on something low to the ground, its far easier and more comfortable to squat down and do it rather than kneel down or lie down, and gives you better freedom of motion.

    I also used to get a sore back some nights when sleeping due to tight lower back muscles. Training to squat stretched them out so indirectly resolved that issue. Its a great way to start training ankle flexibility which was a problem for some of my lifts (also a good injury prevention meausre). You just squat down and let gravity work, no effort required. It really is the best way to stretch.

    Plus you get to mog fats/old people who couldn't dream of doing such a thing when you do it in front of them.

      Funnily enough a lot of his has to do with your back mobility. If you have a stiff thoracic spine your back can't straighten out to get into a deep squat position and throws the balance off. I you can't do pic rel you probably can't Asian squat.

      a lot of it has to do with the "version" of your hips, which refers to the angle at which your femur ball inserts into your hip socket. Unlike muscle/tendon flexibility or ankle dorsiflexion which can be improved, this is a limit of bone-against-bone and you have to learn the right leg position in order to allow a deep squat for your particular versioning. If you are retroverted, you must have your thighs splayed out to the more to the sides in order to get into a deep squat, and if you are anteverted, you must have your legs pretty much pointing straight in front of you. This is an issue because you have a lot of people around the internet advising everyone about how to do a "correct" squat and they often recommend a single fixed leg/foot position, which really doesn't work for everyone, and then you have people who can't get into a deep squat the way the "expert" said to and think it's just not in their anatomy to be able to do it. Back flexibility is really not going to factor into deep squatting that much... in fact you are not really supposed to be rounding/flexing your back in that kind of position, it's supposed to be pretty much straight

            I look like the guy on the left when I do it. I have some kyphosis (working on it) so my upper back can't straighten out the way it needs to when you squat down like that, so my centre of gravity is too far back so I either fall backwards or have to lean really far forward like this.

              The guy on the left has his legs straight in front of him.
              The guy on the right is rotating his legs outwards.
              The real answer is that a lot of westerners sit too much and have shit hip rotation, which limits squat depth.

            Are you short? As in height?
            If you have large femurs and impaired ankle flexibility, when you try to squat with your heels on the ground the first thing that will happen is that you will STOP when your thighs reach a parallel with the ground.
            If you go further and keep your back straight you will fall backwards and how do you prevent that? You shifting your center of gravity forwards by throwing your torso between your legs. Problem? Your ankle isn't flexible which is gonna make that painful and thus your body automatically takes your heels off the ground, shifting your weight further forward but on your toes.

            I can do picrel much, much, much easier and without pain than a heel to ground squat.
            I am working on my ankle flexibility, though.

    Nothing to do with being an Asian, everything to do with being a lazy, fatass westerner.

    I was 25 years old when I read from a newspaper about this phenomenon. I couldn't believe what I was reading. I had to ask my band mates to try and squat. Only a couple out of five could barely do any kind of squat.

    It's the most natural stance a human has. I've squatted my whole life. And this is IST for fucks sake, you are supposed to squat. It never ceases to amaze me how fucking unfit fat fucks lurk around here.

    If you are not able to squat and you're under 40 years old (I'm 36 now), fucking do something about it or just end yourself. At least don't pretend you're fit.

        Your ankles aren't flexible cuz americans never have to squat down for anything, asian countries their beds are lower, they sit on the floor sometimes, lot of toilets you need to squat over to use, Americans just have high seated chairs, their beds are waist level, everyone is immobile and sedentary, I didn't realize how much of a problem it is for people to squat.

        We should unironically still use squat toilets.
        Using chairs just made it easier for society to get fat since shitting requires zero physical ability here.
        If you have to squat, it means you can't get as outrageously fat and inflexible as out fatties do

        This is why japanese have less than a 1% obesity rate, everything there is harsh for fat people, apartments with narrow hallways, steep stairs, tiny apartments, you have to walk everywhere cuz you can't get a car, if you're obese you can't squat over public toilets right (which you'd have to use everytime you want to shit since some places dont have inhouse toilets) their traditional beds are lower or on the floor so you can't be obese/mobility issues getting up and down, pretty common to sit on the floor there too, they also don't have this body acceptance culture and "just eat when you're hungry bro, you don't hold in your piss"

          I don't know what it is with you Amerifucks and accusing people of being fat when you get into an argument with them. My current answer is that I have been underweight multiple times in my adult life and only gone into so-called "overweight" when on bulks. It has nothing to do with being overweight, your ass has to touch the ground. I have to admit, you're almost doing it, for a caucasian that's about the best one could get, even many asian people can't do it. But look I wrote this post as well

          https://i.imgur.com/rknXWhE.jpg

          Because you don't hit the floor. You go ass to grass, not ass to ground.

          It's worth noting also that this is how chimps and other primates sit naturally. They don't sit in a chair, they basically squat to the point of their butt hitting the ground. Same with how cats and dogs sit. But some humans can't sit like this anymore.

          - that's what you can't do. A rare number of Arab people can do it. They are both very thin AND they have the physiology for it.

          This isn't some new thing I'm thinking about, I've been thinking about this and sitting in a similar way for like 10 years. Notice how when someone has poor circulation they're told to "raise their legs" - it's because your legs should be higher than they are relative to your heart. That's how you avoid deep vein thrombosis. Another thing compression stockings are vital for a lot of people to keep that pressure up in their legs and not let blood start to clot there. Well by sitting like this you are compressing your legs. So guess what? You're retarded if you argue with me on this topic because you'll be wrong. My point is very simple, as westerners we have lost that way we're supposed to sit, that's why we have to resort to chairs.

    the way to master the asian squat is to train duckwalks for a while...Duckwalks is also a great exercise for hip abductors, in case you fags have hip dips and need to compensate. You can also do duckwalks weighted. Great mobility and balance gains to, the better you get at them.

      Based video. I had a fucked ankle that had to go through rehab, readjustment, etc. After all of that external shit, I was basically told I would need to find mobility work and stretches to get proper dorsiflexion back. I tried banded distractions for joint mobilization, weighted lunges on my knee, atg split squats, and finally landed on just sitting in a squat with any additional support I need.

      One thing I somewhat disagree with or would add to his method; He mentions picking a foot position that is comfortable for you, however, I think anyone should take the time to try and achieve a squat where both feet are pointed stright forward and the feet are together if your goal is ankle mobility. If you can do that, you can squat in literally any position.

      Of course, listen to your body. Discomfort is ok, pain is not. If you just want to achieve a comfortable full ATG squat in your "natural" preferred stance, go for it.

    Similar to other anons in this thread, I can squat with my ankles on the floor but my center of gravity shifts so far back that I can’t stay on my feet unless I extend my arms in front of me. Rsising my heels and standing on the balls of my feet fixes this issue and I can squat like that comfortably for a while.

    Nothing to do with us Fingols, squatting has always been a Slav thing.
    In fact, during the last war one of the ways to find Russian spies in the workforce was to shout "alright, five minute break" and then arrest those who automatically dropped into a squat.

    I couldn’t do the slav squat two years ago. I can now do so effortlessly. You have to incorporate stretch for your tibialis, and slowly make progress on it. The ability to do it without practice comes more from lifestyle. Asians have a more active one and westerners have a more sedentary one. Simple as.

    They have shorter femurs on average.

    Also probably a different hip structure via genetics that favours squats (this is a generalization, there are probably lots of asians with bad hip structure for squats). Also squatting is much more ingrained in their culture and they do it more, they sit down less, perhaps also. I think learning to flex your lumbar muscles to get to the bottom of a squat (especially women as they like to stick their ass out and usually have lordosis) takes training, note that the lumbar spine of the western girl is neutral, while the lumbar is flexed in the chink.

        shorter femur means your shin doesnt need to be at such an extreme angle to hit a2g depth, which puts less stress on your ankles.

            No but it factors in to it. Its also about your femur length in proportion to your torso length and tibula/tibia length and all of the things mentioned above.

            If you spent like 30 mins doing it every day im sure you'd be feel a lot more comfortable in an a2g position. Everything factors in to it. Muscle strength, ligament strength, body proportions, balance.
