Can You Do the Asian Squat?

你能亞洲蹲嗎?

出版時間:2019/08/14

The deep squat is a familiar pose for those who have used squat toilets before. However, in places where these toilets are less common, the position is sometimes called the “Asian squat.” A person comfortable with this position can hold it for as long as they want, which can range from minutes to even hours.

這個深蹲和那些有用過蹲式馬桶的人的姿勢類似。然而,在這種馬桶較不常見的地方,這個姿勢有時候被稱作「亞洲蹲」。對這個姿勢感到自在的人,能維持這個姿勢多久都可以,從幾分鐘到幾小時都行。如果附近看不到椅子也沒關係。會亞洲蹲的人可以在許多場合做出這個招牌姿勢,像是在吃東西、等人或抽菸休息等的時候。
