🍑A$$ TO GRASS🍑
Is it a mobility issue or a stability issue??
If you missed the #docjenchallenge yesterday, grab a water bottle and try it out!
In order to get down to the ground, you must make sure your head and chest stay relatively tall in place without too much movement or the water bottle falls.
Could this be an ankle and hip mobility issue?
If you need help opening those areas, I would highly recommend diving into The Mobility Method to find WHERE those restrictions are and learn the tools to release them 🙌
Now, as for a stability issue...
I am STILL seeing those “Instagram booties” taking charge into the squat.
What does this mean?
You dump the hip bones forward (anterior pelvic tilt), stick the booty out, and then try to squat 🙈
Not only will you lose your ability to increase squat depth, but you could end up impinging into those hips over time and wind up with some achy back or knee pain.
Instead, I suggest rocking the hips back and forth between extreme anterior pelvic tilt and posterior pelvic tilt.
This will allow your body to find “neutral.”
Then, think of pulling that blueberry in ladies (men, pretend you’re walking into cold water and sucking them jewels back into you), draw the ribcage down and breathe as you lower to the ground.
Will you still “butt wink”?!
Also normal if you’re going to sit on the ground.
But if it drops from a huge anterior pelvic tilt to a butt wink, chances are you’re losing that water bottle overhead.
Lastly, the mobility to keep the chest upright should come from that upper back extension.
Don’t have it?
