why squat
Why Squat?
  • The Squat has deservedly earned the title, ‘King of Exercises’.
  • No other exercise hits the muscle harder than a solid set of squats.
  • No other single exercise can get the lungs and heart racing like the squat.
  • No other single exercise can stimulate growth like the squat.

  • The squat movement itself is pretty straightforward and can be performed with several variations to produce differing results.
  • These squat variations include, front squat, hack squats, dumbbell squats, sumo squats and box squats.

… Stick With The Following Tips To Ensure Your Squats Are Safe And Effective.

feet position
Feet Position
  • Ensure your feet point either directly ahead of you or slightly outwards.
  • Never point your feet inwards.
  • An inward turn can place disproportional stress on your knees.
  • Whatever foot angle you find most comfortable it’s imperative that you maintain the same angle for both feet.
  • Different angles can place uneven load on one knee – not good

knee position
Knee Position
  • When lowering, your knees shouldn’t extend ahead any further than the end of your toes.
  • Over extending can cause extra stress on the knee joints.
  • Ensure that your knees remain vertically in line with your feet, not jutting out to the left or right.
  • Having your knees ‘out of line’ with your feet can again, can place extra stress on your knee joints.

lifting that bar
Lifting That Bar
  • Rather than trying to lift the bar, focus instead on ‘pushing’ your legs down into the ground.
  • You’ll find this actually makes the lift ‘seem’ easier.
  • This approach also helps you maintain proper form with a straight back by thinking about your legs ‘pushing’ rather than your body ‘lifting’.

keep a straight back
Keep a Straight Back
  • Ensure your back remains at a constant angle to your body during the squat.
  • You want the power to come from your quads (and hip flexors) not your back.
  • Altering the angle places extra load on the lower back.

squat depth
Squat Depth
  • There’s been endless discussions on just how deep you should squat with no common agreement ad probably never will be.
  • My advice?, don’t stick to just one depth, vary the depth of your squats regularly.

conclusion
Conclusion
  • The squat is the #1 exercise not just for legs but for complete body conditioning.
  • I highly recommend you include squats in your routine, once per week is optimal.
  • I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the progress you make not just with your legs but with all aspects of your training.
