Whenever I begin training new clients, I rarely approve of all aspects of their squat and deadlift form. I ask all my online clients to send me videos of their squat and deadlift form and my heart always goes out to these dedicated lifters who have undoubtedly been trying very hard to improve their form, to no avail. Most are trying to pound square pegs into round holes. Most individuals don’t possess an adequate understanding of squat and deadlift form and don’t know how to position their bodies to maximize their leverages and stability. I find that with minor tweaks I can often get someone squatting and/or deadlifting much better instantly. Many say to me, “Wow, that’s how it’s supposed to feel” after learning proper form.
Put simply, even the best powerlifters and Oly lifters who squat and pull in their sleep still have to work on their form year in, year out, so you can never really just “put it on auto-pilot.” Good lifting takes time and practice.
In this blog I wanted to show three videos that will seriously help out your lifting form on lower body lifts. I’m going to show squat, deadlift, and hip thrust form as I believe that they are the three most important lower body lifts. Without further ado, here are the three videos!
I hope you find these videos useful!!!
