What does your squat look like? Is there one side stronger than the other? Do your heels lift up? Is there pain in any part of the squat?
First, pain is the body’s communication tool. Pain is an indicator to go get a doctor to look at that area. Don’t put that off! Avoid “oh I will get to it later,” or the pain isn’t that bad!
Many people lack the flexibility to squat properly. This is especially true for people that have been squatting incorrectly for long periods of time because it can ingrain poor movement patterns that are hard to change. Come join us this Tuesday at 7:30-8am as we look at the hip, ankle and shoulder range of motion during the squat.
See you then,
