Stack Elite Performance Series- Teaching the Squat


I recently filmed a series of videos for my friends at Stack Magazine and Stack.com . The first in the series is a pretty good breakdown of how to teach the squat.

  2. For older non-athletic folks, who still butcher a squat with these variations and tools (i.e. still pitch forward), would the next regression be to use something like the cook band and pull them anteriorly/pitch them forward more to get them to reflexively use the core more? I have several clients who still struggle, with goblet squatting.

  3. You in deed did say that in the beginning I must of missed it the first time. Thanks for the response!

    Yes, I think I said it in both videos, this one and the one referred to as Death of Squatting. We just don’t use heavy bilateral squats but, teaching squat pattern is a great idea for beginners.

  5. I just watched a video on “the death of the squat” does this still hold true. Are there benefits of squatting for athletes with very low training age?
