Let's Talk about Squats

Squats are great. Squats are fun. Squats rock.

Okay now that’s out of the way… squat’s are hard. They are not easy to master. And I don’t know about you, but my trainers are ALWAYS on my case about my form (yes trainers have trainers).

Years ago, a trainer told me it takes 3 years to master the squat. I’ve been at it for longer, and I still haven’t gotten it perfect. In all honesty, I don’t know if I ever will, because of an old injury that limits my mobility, but I keep on trying.

So here are the basics…

  • Feet approximately shoulder width apart

  • Toes forward or pointing slightly outward

  • Don’t let your shoulders round

  • Keep your back in a neutral position

  • Don’t let your butt wink (a little

  • Drop your butt back and down

  • Keep your eyes up

  • Push your knees out over your toes, but don’t let them go in front of your toes

  • Keep your heels on the floor

OMG that is a lot to remember for a silly little squat!

The reason I am sharing this is to let you know that squats are very technical.

If your trainer is on your case about your squat form, it’s not because we are trying to drive you crazy. We aren’t trying to be a pain. We are trying to prevent pain, especially if you are squatting with weight.

So please don’t get discouraged and go DROP IT LIKE A SQUAT!!
