Hey guys, we just put out a video about how to perfect your squat technique! Go ahead and watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZTaJR8zUs4
The video goes into the full breakdown of everything to remember while doing your squats, including breathing and tension techniques. This email will just outline the main cues you should keep in mind to make sure your squat is always safe and effective.
Stance: Feet at shoulder width or just outside shoulder width apart Feet are slightly pointed outwards
Knees are driven out and in line with your middle toe, don’t let knees cave in.
Depth: Hip bones at the same height as knees
Head up and chest up so your back is straight and safe.
Use a mirror to help get your setup correct and then practice the movement without weights. Once you’re comfortable doing bodyweight squats, either film yourself or get a coach to monitor your form as you perform the movement with weights. Adding load will slightly change the way you perform the movement so keep that in mind.
Thanks guys! If you have any questions then get in touch, we’d be happy to help you guys out!
