Hack Your Squat (From the Bottom Up)

Tomasz DerenMobility, TrainingLeave a Comment

Trouble squatting? Try reverse engineering your squat during your warm-up.

In our desk bound world being a quad dominant individual is the norm. Even some of the highest level athletes I have trained in my life exhibit a huge quad dominance with a massive inability to properly stabilize the pelvis using the core musculature. As children we learn to squat from the bottom up as this is a natural progression after we learn to crawl. If you are a quad dominant individual who has knee pain while squatting why not try this variation in your warm up to start recruiting the core and not relying solely on the quads to decelerate your movement. Your knees and squat position will thank you!
