Today I have a new article on TNation pertaining to squatting technique. In the article, I touch upon:
- Knee position
- Stance width
- Bar placement
- Foot flare
- Foot action
- Eccentric lowering initiation
- Concentric rising initiation
This is my conclusion:
Optimal deep squat form is just common sense. You don’t need an advanced understanding of biomechanics. You just need to understand that it’s in your best interest to properly distribute the forces across and within the different joints involved in squatting.
Try these tips and see if they help your performance. And always remember to lighten up the load when learning new techniques.
