You Ever Wonder?
Short one for you today.
You ever wonder what you should look like at the bottom of a squat?
Well you should, but in case you haven’t I have and this is what I came up with.
At the bottom of the squat…
1. Your knees should be pushed out.
2. Your back should be arched.
3. Your chest should be up.
4. Your head should be back into the bar.
5. Your upper back should be pulled together.
6. Your elbows should be under or slightly behind the bar.
7. You should be pushing out on the sides of your shoes.
8. Your torso (belly and chest) should be full of air.
9. You should be pushing out against your belt.
10. You should have a tight grip on the bar.
11. Your knees should be in line with your ankles (or slightly in front)
12. If you use gear, you will want to push your knees out extra hard after you bind up to get you down that extra couple inches without falling forward. This position will set you up for a shorter and safer bar path on the concentric portion of the lift.

It's always nice to be reminded of these little things.
