How to use squat in a sentence?

  1. Steve McMichael:

    I know what it feels like to go in the weight room and do a set of three with 725 pounds on the squat rack, now? When I get up and try to move? It feels like I’m doing 1,000 (expletive) pounds. And it’s just exhausting straining that hard.

  2. Kolleen Losch:

    We have to be able to do a squat that's safe and effective for when you're sitting in a chair, getting into a car, getting off the couch, those are all functional movements.

  3. Deepak Chopra:

    Skeptics squat by the road like guardians of truth, letting no one pass who doesn't come up to scratch. They never realize that they can see only what their paradigm tells them to look for. If you judge a person only by how well he plays pool, Mozart won't pass scrutiny, but the fault is in your lens.

  4. Simon Cheng:

    I was hung (handcuffed and shackled) on a steep X-Cross doing a spread-eagled pose for hours after hours, sometimes, they ordered me to do the 'stress tests', which includes extreme strength exercise such as 'squat' and 'chair pose' for countless hours. They beat me every time I failed to do so using something like sharpened batons.

  5. Vappala Balachandran:

    First baton charge, then tear gas and when everything fails, firing. The constables have to squat on the ground placing one knee on the floor, take aim on the legs to incapacitate the rioters and fire.
