Thursday, May 9
We talk about keeping a stable foundation in the squat a lot. Hopefully you’ve heard us talk about foot position by now, but maybe you didn’t quite get what we were saying. The video below does a great job of showing what a stable foot in the squat should look like.
If you create the “tripod foot” you will have a better aligned knee and stable hip in your squat. Better alignment and stability means you’ll be safer and stronger in the movement.
This is what we mean when we talk about “screwing” the feet into the ground and maintaining a strong arch. Like the video says, try it with your shoes off to see what your feet are doing. And if you have flat feet, this becomes even more important so you can strengthen the bottom of your foot and build more stability.
Check it out and give this a try!
