Now, on to some mobility for the week. Here’s a 30 minute session on fixing low back pain and the butt wink while squatting. If you can’t watch the full session, please watch the first 10 minutes. He does a great job of explaining how deep you should squat and how to know when to stop. The answer to how deep you should squat is as far as you can go with proper form. If you can’t hold position as you bottom out, you shouldn’t bottom out. The reason for a butt wink (posterior pelvic tilt) may be lack of mobility or lack of neurological control, both of which can be improved with training. Check out the video below for demonstration and more explanation of all of this.
