A COMMON FAULT ❌ DURING BACK SQUATS
A high percentage of people that exercise is quad dominant, due to not able to activate the glutes and hamstrings when squatting, tight muscles, or training at too heavy of a weight and your body is compensating. But the thing is you need to realize that if not corrected can lead to lower back pain or knee pain.
Your glutes are designed to be the shock absorber of the body, it is made to take the highest percentage of load or impact to reduce the stress on the other joints. When you are putting yourself in the 1st position in the video, you are increasing the pressure in the knees and increasing the load on the lower back.
If you are squatting and you catch yourself doing this ⬇️ the weight, focus on using your glutes and hamstrings when pushing through the concentric motion. Increase the weight slowly so your positioning/form won't falter.
BE SMART🧠, RESPECT YOUR BODY AND IT WILL RESPECT YOU BACK
