Squat – Anti-rotation

  • HOW:  Begin by placing a strap looped through one shoulder as shown in the video. Stand with your feet at a comfortable distance from each other. Keep the both feet entirely on the ground throughout the movement. Sink your hips down and backwards, and then stand back up tall, and repeat.
  • FEEL:  You should feel all of the thigh muscles and butt muscles working. You may also feel the core work with this variation.
  • COMPENSATION:  Avoid letting the knees cave in or bow out. Keep equal weight distribution in both feet, and try not to let your hips shift left or right. Keep a neutral spine by keeping your core engaged to avoid having a over-arched or rounded back. Avoid rotating towards the anchor, resist the pull to keep your hips facing forward throughout this motion.
