Always Learning

I regularly watch instructional videos from high caliber lifters to see if I'm forgetting anything. Turns out I have been making a huge mistake with my Squats for quite some time.

Here is the video I watched.

How to Squat, With Chris Duffin

What I noticed is that I am not tightening my core before descending into the Squat. I take a deep breath and then drop. The following are cues I am going to use in the future to correct the fault.
  1. Deep Breath
  2. Draw the ribs down
  3. Inflate Oblique's
  4. Bend the Bar (tighten lats)
  5. Twist Feet into the floor
  6. Sit Back
Its that simple. Now I can't wait until next squat day to see what I have been missing.
