BODYWEIGHT SQUAT


VIDEO DEMO:


EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. FOOT POSITION; many people say you need to be at “10 and 2 O’ Clock” for squats – this is BS. Everyone squats differently, so don’t sweat it. If I asked you to leap as high as you can, where would you plant your feet? That’s exactly where you should stand for a squat, because it is your ‘power stance’.
  2. PERFORM THE REP; Sitting down and back, then explode out of the hole, squeezing your glutes at the top of the rep.
  3. TIP: If you can reach a 90 degree angle that’s a good rep. Don’t listen to bulls**t about needing to go all the way to the floor – this depends on your hips and your femur length – only go below 90 if you can do it without discomfort, and don’t bounce outta the hole!
