Fix Your Immature Squat With The Bottoms Up Squat

The bottoms up squat makes a great exercise to fix the immature squat. Reaching to the toes first gets many athletes to shift their hips backwards, which is maintained when they sit their bottoms down. By placing the arms between the legs, the athlete is forced to push his knees out as he descends. Once at the bottom, cue the athlete to lift his chest and work towards a neutral spine. Once positioned correctly, the athlete will stand.
