Fixing a Squat

Druboutin 08-05-2014 03:57 PM

Question for you Lyle..

When describing the setup you wrote "Basically, lie on your back with knees about 90 degrees and feet hip width. Put a belt around your thighs so that when you push out into it, your knees are over your toes."

What did you mean by knees over your toes? From looking at the pictures it appears the knees are applying constant pressure outward, hips are moving upward, and knee placement is actually slightly behind the ankle, not forward and over the toes, which would be quite an uncomfortable position.

Knees over toes like in the split squat drawing. Not broken outside of the feet or inside side to side.

Ah gotcha, I thought you meant from the bridge position. Makes sense. Good article.

I started up med school about a year ago, and have been having trouble with tight hip flexors along with poor hamstring and glute flexibility. I've been noticing more of anterior pelvic tilt also. What would you suggest to fix this?

If this is going off on a tangent, please let me know and I will make a new post.

This helped me, to quote Lyle

Squat stretch: Load a bar with a moderate weight. Get into your lowest squat position in good form. HOLD it and let the weight push you a little bit further down. That plus targeted isolated stretching will have the greatest impact.

I'm not going to the gym at the moment though, so I'll probably buy those elastic bands that allows to go into the squat position (don't have any weights, bar at home).

Right answer to a different question.

Jake97 08-15-2014 09:37 AM

Yeah, I completely forgot to add that the quote was taken from the context of squat form/flexibility issues, my bad.

He was asking specifically about tight hip flexors and anterior pelvic tilt.
