Your Gateway To Squatting Safely
I love to squat.
In matter of fact I’ve squatted 18 separate times in the last 5 weeks.
However, you have to earn the right to squat.
When I was younger I played baseball and my position was the catcher.
That meant that I squatted every day hundreds of times during training and games.
This has carried over to squatting in the gym with ease.
However you may not be as fortunate.
Generally I find there are three things that stop people from getting a nice ass to grass squat.
You sit in an office chair most of the day..
Have never learned how to squat properly…
Your biomechanics doesn’t lean itself to squatting – put simply this is your shin bone and torso length.
For the reasons above some people need to regress down to the most basic squat variation to ensure a full range of motion and learn proper technique.
The most basic squat you can do is a front foot elevated split squat as shown below.
As I explained in the video that is the most basic form of squat.
Shoot for 3 sets of 10 on each leg aiming to be 3 seconds on the way down and 1 second up.
Once you can master 3 sets of 10 with some weights in your hands then you might be ready for the next step up.
Like I said, you have to earn the right to squat PROPERLY as some people don’t have the mobility required to squat with depth.
