Default 20 Squat Mistakes

From the elitefts? Twitter Chat: Twenty Squat Mistakes

Squat Mistake #1 – thinking it’s not technical and simple.

Squat Mistake #2 – not setting up TIGHT from head to toe.

Squat Mistake #3 – not arching the bar out of the rack.

Squat Mistake #4 – not starting with an arch and ass back.

Squat Mistake #5 – pulling air into your chest and not your belly.

Squat Mistake #6 – looking up instead of driving head and traps into the bar.

Squat Mistake #7 – not spreading the floor and pushing your knees out.

Squat Mistake #8 – sitting down instead of back.

Squat Mistake #9 – moving hips first out of the hole. The head and chest must move back first.

Squat Mistake #10 – not using compensatory acceleration on the concentric phase.

Squat Mistake #11 – looking down when the lift gets hard. When it gets hard, drive head into the bar.

Squat Mistake #12 – not using a box squat in one form or another.

Squat Mistake #13 – not squatting with people stronger than you.

Squat Mistake #14 – thinking there is a huge difference between squat training for raw vs. geared.

Squat Mistake #15 – not having an honest person watching your depth.

Squat Mistake #16 – slacking on training your core.

Squat Mistake #17 – being a pussy that is scared of big weights.

Squat Mistake #18 – not rotating bars – this can allow for same volume and intensity with a reduction in workload.

Squat Mistake #19 - thinking you know it all when you don’t know “squat.”

Squat Mistake #20 – technique is CRITICAL!!! This is how we get beginner – advanced lifters break PRs in 1.5 hours of seminar coaching.

Destroy That Which Destroys You
