One Trick to Immediately Improve Your Squats!

August 07, 2014 2 min read

Would you believe that most people actually perform squats incorrectly? It is true. The #1 mistake that most people make while squatting is allowing their knees to go way over their toes upon execution. I've done it for years until I realized it was completely wrong! So how do you know if you are doing a squat improperly? Give yourself a little test.
  1. Stand up straight, with feet shoulder width apart.
  2. Squat down as low as you can keeping your torso straight.
  3. Now, check your knees. If they are way over your toes, then you need to improve your form because you could end up potentially hurting yourself - especially if you were to add any weights.
squats How do you learn to control your knees to squat properly? Two words: Wall Squats! Wall squats are the perfect way to teach someone how to squat correctly.
  1. Basically, you face a wall and standing 6 inches away.
  2. Squat down as low as you can-do not touch the wall!
  3. Keep your torso straight.
  4. Check your knees!
squats "How in the heck does this wall squat help me?" you might wonder. Seeing the wall right in front of you gives you a visual reference to keep you upright and squatting with your back straight. You use the wall as your guide to mimic a perfect squat by keeping your body in line and allowing you to become more aware of your form or posture. The wall does not allow any part of your body to lean forward - as it normally would if you have been doing the squats entirely wrong. If you have been doing squats wrong, this will actually feel weird to you. So, it may sound simple, but it has been one of the best tips I have ever received in order to improve my squats.
