2 Steps to a Safe and Solid Back Squat

Watch our video for two commonly overlooked components of a good squat. These carry over to other lifts as well, such as deadlifts, olympic lifts, and more. 

1- Use your breath to brace your spine and stabilize your midline. Think about pushing air into your abdomen like you are getting ready to take a punch in the stomach!

2- Be mindful of your pelvis and not tilting forward or back. When in doubt, squeeze your glutes at the top of the squat setup to get your body in line. Then descend with your hips going downward and back behind your heels.
