Hope everyone had an amazing thanksgiving 🦃unfortunately I spent mine sick lol but I'm so so thankful for the most amazing family. My mom sat with me all day while everyone went out to dinner.. love ya @beatewright ❤️ Thanksgiving is amazing for me because it allows you to take a step back and realize you're LIVING and that is an incredibly beautiful thing.. and if you're not... you have the choice to. REMINDER: @paragonfitwear winter collection releases at 12 am and buy ANY legging or jogger and you get a hoodie for $1 👏🏻 long sleeve shirts are also for sale.. don't forget to use code: collegeclean 😌
🦑When squatting, you shouldn’t be looking up at yourself in mirror or looking at the ceiling!🤔
🦈Many use this technique as a means to keep their back straight and squat lower. While for some people they may think it’s helping them. It’s doing the complete opposite.
1️⃣ When you force your neck into an overly extended position, it will be firing up a commonly over used pattern anyway. So we may get more neck/upper back pain because of this. We extend our necks all the time under load🔱
2️⃣ The low back works in sync with the neck. If the neck is overly extended...the back will be overly fired up. We need our back to be stiff but not overly stiff relative to other areas. This will prevent our ability to sink into a squat. Which will make it more difficult to stay tight and be fast out of the hole.
3️⃣ If you have to do this technique, you must work on loading your hips more effectively. Plain and simple. It’s not a back issue...it’s a hip issue most likely.
🎧If you find yourself having to use unorthodox techniques “hit depth” chances are your hips weren’t meant to hit depth... or you need to work on mobility and loading the joints with regressed movements before doing an advanced movement like a barbell squat.
Good luck...and remember, regression IS progression sometimes!
