Assess, Correct & Activate The Squat (W/S)

When it comes to squatting, correct technique is highly individual. Stance width, foot position & bar position must all be individualized to the lifter. Therefore, most people shouldn’t be squatting without a movement assessment; nor should they follow general set-up instructions from a behemoth with freakish genetics. This session will practically instruct participants through 1. Biomechanical assessment 2. Percussive corrective mobility 3. Pre workout nervous system activation.
