Recently I’ve gotten a few message asking me “how to squat properly and how to prevent injury”.So here are a few tips that can help you. Keep your eyes on my form and follow my instructions…. Goodluck everyone and have a great new week. 1. Stand with feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart, hips stacked over knees, and knees over ankles. 2. Roll the shoulders back and down away from the ears. This will prevent unnecessary stress on the lower back. It’s important to maintain a neutral spine throughout the movement. 3. Extend arms out straight so they are parallel with the ground, palms facing down. if it’s more comfortable, pull elbows close to the body, palms facing each other and thumbs pointing up. 4. Initiate the movement by inhaling and unlocking the hips, slightly bringing them back. Keep sending hips backward as the knees begin to bend. 5. While the butt starts to stick out, make sure the chest and shoulders stay upright, and the back stays straight. *Note💜" Keep the head facing forward with eyes straight ahead for a neutral spine. . *Important note* 6. The best squats are the deepest ones your mobility allows. Optimal squat depth would be your hips sinking below the knees. * Pro tip*: Squatting onto a box until the butt gently taps it will be a reminder to squat low. It help 7. Engage core and, with bodyweight in the heels, explode back up to standing, driving through heels. Imagine the feet are spreading the floor left foot to the left, right foot to the right without actually moving the feet.
