We see a variety of squats in the gym every day! We see boxes, bands, wide stances, narrow stances, no lock outs, heels elevated & the list goes on and on. But when it comes to squatting variables, a common one is the depth.
A squat is a compound, multi joint, full body exercise that engages most of the lower body. The motion will have you bend at the knees, hinge at the hip whilst keeping the back flat & torso upright. Whether its performed with bodyweight, with a dumbbell, kettlebell or barbell… It’s certainly a staple of most training programs. In saying that, we should want to get the most out of this exercise.
