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.
