1 – All good things start with a strong core! Yep, if you thought the squat was just for legs then think again! Get tight at the top and make sure your core is engaged. Wedge your feet into the ground. Inhale deep into midsection. Squeeze glutes, abs, lats.
2 – Actively pull yourself into the hole (the bottom of the squat). Don’t just drop. By pulling yourself down, you’ll be much stronger on the way back up.
3 – How low should you go? Your depth should be determined by maintaining a proper low back position. If your hips tilt or tuck or your shoulders round causing you to lose that neutral spine then try bringing your squat up to a level where you can maintain a strong back!
