The new term for the month is "Bending the Knee". It has been used a lot in the list of workouts and hashtags that have tagged the instagram page. Thinking about the slogan "bend the knee" it started to make me think in more than one dimension of the term. Of course when you squat you do bend at your knees. Some call it the "King" of All Exercise. I have started to believe in both and ironically you would bend the knee to either. Bending a knee while squat and to the King of Exercise. With this month coming to an end, even though I am finishing out next week still with squatober, makes me think of what it has done for me. I would say overall I have lost weight although gained weight. Another thing I have noticed is I have gained strength and size in my legs. Not limited to that I have gained strength and size all over. My stomach has also gotten very strong and I have not performed one crunch, sit up or any exercise that focus purely on my abs. Engaging my core everyday in my squat has made that possible. If someone were to ask me that they want to completely change their bodies I would tell them to squat. I don't think that means putting a bunch of weight on a bar. Sometimes just squating into a chair without using your arms or at least limit the amount of your arms used. Also body squats could also help. Use a wall or a table to help hold yourself steady if you need. There are many variations to help build yourself up. If you have a question I can try my best to help you out just let me know!

Hi my name is Trever Duncan. I started Fit24 in the Summer of 2013. I have always loved fitness but have fallen away from it over the past few years (crazy to imagine having started a fitness center). Although I remain active through my various hobbies on my small property and enjoyment of moving things which has allowed me to keep my strength up to an extent. My first true fascination was running. I failed in the 5th grade on winning the mile so I decided to run everyday for a whole year. My 6th grade year I came back after self training running a 5:56 mile. My second love was wrestling which has been my favorite ever since I failed by getting cut by the 8th grade basketball team. Therefore started to wrestle. Thank God I did. I ended up winning my high schools top athlete award by my senior year and having(https://house.mo.gov/billtracking/bills03/hlrbillspdf/4178C.01.pdf). Funny how failure leads to success. And this is were I had decided to start blogging to show others sometimes the best success comes from failure or at least mine have!
