Take some baby squats in the right direction.

You may be doing it wrong.

Youre doing it wrong

Here's how to do it right:

Baby-squat

Pick one cue that helps you with one aspect of your squat. Only think that one cue during all your squats today, but think it AS LOUD AS YOU CAN! Ask some one to watch and see if that aspect of your squats got better.

Here are some cue ideas:

KNEES OUT!

CHEST UP!

RIP THE FLOOR APART WITH MY FEET!

KNEES OUT!!

SQUEEZE BUTT!

TIGHT BELLY!

or… KNEES OUT!!!

 

Whatever squat your journey has you on today:

1.  Mobilize the hips, glutes, hams, calves.

2.  Warmup with a superset of 3 rds: Reverse Hyper x12 alternate with Hip Thrusts (floor version)x12

3. Find 1RM Squat

4. Drop 30-35% for 3×5, increase weights for heavy unbroken set of 5.

5. Drop 50% for 1×10.

    Box Squat
    145# 1 RM
    95# x 5
    100# x 5
    105# x 5
    75# x 10
    Feeling a little easier to get hips back on way down and avoid stretch reflex on way up from box.
