Most people lock their knees. It has been researched that this habit creates a huge impact on blood circulation and supply of oxygen to the brain.
A sense of fatigue can occur for extended time if standing in this position.
Why do we do it?
Guess guess…? Weakened glutes and lower back muscles due to excessive sitting are said to be the main causes. True in part.
From my experience I see people with a bit of a belly entering this position quite naturally. This is because of the tilting forward of the pelvis. The core muscles are disengaged therefore the whole weight is on the knees.
That’s one of the main reason of knee pain and osteoarthritis.
Through juicing we reduce the internal swelling and inflammation in the guts so we can re establish the natural standing posture which sees the knees slightly bent.
