Fix This Common Mistake and Get the Most Out of Your Squats

The squat – be it a Goblet or Double Kettlebell Front Squat – is a “grind”. This means the movement is to be done under complete tension and control.

Too often we see people “falling” into the bottom of their squat and then bouncing back up. For a number of reasons, this is far from ideal.

Instead, we want to create full-body tension and activity use our hip flexors to pull ourselves down into the bottom of the squat. From there, we should stand back up, keeping that full-body tension the entire time.

Doing so will allow us to get the most from our squats – more strength, more muscle recruitment, and a better workout.
