Helping improve and regain proper squat movement patterns.
PRIORITIZING MOVEMENT QUALITY
Movement quality and efficiency should be prioritized above repetition minimums for the health and safety of all individuals involved in a training program. Proper kinetic chain mechanics will ensure normal posture, load dispersement and prevention of movement impairment syndromes that can result from poor technique. Often, altered squat mechanics are utilized to “hit” rep goals with the ankles, knees, hips and lower back suffering the consequences in the form of acute and chronic injuries. The majority of individuals can correct their squat mechanics by slightly elevating their heels, thus, decreasing the risk of injury.
