    The guy makes a decent point about animals and the deep squat but he is addressing the hip flexor in a very simplistic manner. The reason why nobody has studied the length is because it also attached to all 5 vertebral bodies, anterior ligaments, and anterior discs in the low back. It is also one of the few muscles in the human body where the origin and the insertion move. To measure the length of the hip flexor one would need multiple CT scans (radiation levels too invasive for human studies), MRI’s ($1,500 dollars a piece and most don’t work in the abdomen because of movement of intestines and aorta, or invasive surgery to actually put a tape measure on the thing. My vote from seeing tons of hip and low back problems in desk jockeys, truck drivers, salepeople who drive a lot is that prolonged sitting is one of the primary causative factors in these patient populations.

    Thanks Nick I was hoping you’d chime in on this one!

    PR 165 for 10 squats today. Probably could do 15-20lbs more. I’ll get it next time. Werd.
