Air Squat

by admin

The squat is the most fundamental movement.  Its is essential that you take the time to master this skill.  Do it properly, do it often.

  • Feet shoulder width apart with toes pointed slightly outwards.
  • Initiate squat by sticking your butt back.
  • Keep your chest up and maintain a tight low back.
  • Squat to or slightly below parallel making sure your knees stay over your toes and most of your body weight is in your heels.
  • Drive back upwards out of your heels keeping your knees pressed outwards.
  • Return to the top of the squat standing at full extension, thrusting pelvis/hips forward.
  • Ready for more? Try the Front Squat with weight
When starting out, you can squat to a medicine ball or a box.

Now just for fun, here’s a video of 100 people, doing 100 squats, on the 100th day of a challenge.
