It’s In The Angles…Squat Like A Protractor

How To Perform The Squat

How To Perform The Squat (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Squats are cool. Squats are evil! Squats will make you so strong that you will never stop. When you squat you are doing important work that will benefit you for the rest of your life.

The pic above shows  where you should end up at the bottom of your squat. Notice the head is in line and neutral with the back and spine.  Technically , you are not supposed to look up although you see a lot of people doing it and I really don’t think that they ever hurt themselves.

If you are new to squatting this may give you a better idea of what you will look like if you squat properly. Don’t over think this though! Just put a manageable weight on the bar and take an athletic stance and go for it! Just squat! It is a normal movement that you have performed thousands of times since you were a baby…….enyoy.
