Going Back to Basics


Strength in Conditioning for Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Going back to basics is the best place to start when looking to improve upon any skill. When it comes to functional fitness the air squat is about as basic as it gets! But, basic doesn’t necessarily imply ease. Some experts say that it takes 3-5 years to develop an efficient, biomechanically sound air squat.

If we are looking to master more technical lifts, such as the the clean, snatch, and the components within them, it all comes down to how comfortable you are in the bottom of your squat. And let’s face it, very few of us actually enjoying bring at the bottom of our squat! Let’s work on changing that by joining SICFIT Scottsdale this Friday from 6:30 to 8pm for “The ‘Perfect’ Squat Clinic.’ This clinic may be just what you needed for that next PR!
