Whether it’s a formal squat movement with 500 pounds for ten repetitions or sitting in a chair, the squat is one of the most important movements - in or out of the gym. On a busy day, we squat thousands of times. Incorrect movements lead to significant back injuries. We will discuss mobility, perform tests, and demonstrate a proper squat. We will address the benefits of rooting, neutral pelvic position, overall neutral spine position and the benefits of contracting your abdominal wall while keeping the cervical spine in the correct position when hip hinging.
