Use Your Hips. Really.
“When you squat, use your hips. This means that you’ll have to use a more horizontal back angle than the one in the picture in your head.
You know that picture of the squat you carry around with you, from watching Olympic lifters front squat or doing their “Olympic” squats that are supposed to be more “athletic.”
Maybe it came from reading Muscle & Fitness or any of the other newsstand exercise publications at the cash register, while you were waiting to pay for your skinless chicken breasts and rice. Or maybe it was taught to you by an expert CrossFit Level I coach, who thinks that a squat finally “matures” when you can lead with your chest with 185.”
