“Paleo is about re-kindling the strategic aspect of eating in order to optimize health and performance, both on the field and in everyday life. It may be an ancestral model, but it’s no less applicable to our modern context.”—-Nicole Crawford for Breaking Muscle
“The squat is the king of all exercises. There is no movement more essential or foundational than the one that comprises the basic ability to raise and lower your center of mass and express strength and flexibility through the extremities of the lower body while stabilizing the spine. You will always need to squat. If you are sitting down, you must perform a squat. If you go to the bathroom, you must squat. Losing the ability to do this movement is losing the ability to live independently. Think: “Help! I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!” Long story short, this is a movement you will want to do — and do well — your entire life.”—Dave Lipson for The Box
