Flexibility Rx Squat Therapy Series

Strength in Conditioning for Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Who couldn’t use to improve their squat? Try this Squat Therapy Series from Flexibility Rx and see how your bottom position improves!

The goblet squat helps with learning to keep your torso upright, maintaining a neutral lumbar curve at the bottom of the squat, and a good thoracic position.  The band squat helps with keeping an upright torso, thoracic position, and progressing squat depth.  The box squat grooves the pattern of keeping your weight on your heels, getting the hips below parallel, and keeping the knees out.  Incorporate these three squat variations into your warmup and you will be on your way to strong, healthy squat.

The seven ‘Points of Performance’ for the squat are:

  1. Weight on heels
  2. Hips below parallel
  3. Knees-out
  4. Upright torso
  5. Lumbar Curve
  6. Thoracic Position
  7. Arms Overhead
