Today we are going to talk about squatting, walk into any gym and you will see trainers training their clients in the barbell squat.
We’ve all seen it, a trainee performs a squat and his/her knees begin to buckle, their heels come off the ground and their body crumbles forward.
All very common mistakes. If you can’t squat with your bodyweight, you should not squat with any form of load. Here are some simple cues to teach a proper body squat and have you on your way to safely achieve that barbell squat PR!
