How to Squat

The back squat is commonly used in the gym but is unfortunately often performed incorrectly! A issue that is often discussed is the depth in which to squat… The answer is to squat as deep as your flexibility and technique allow. A full range squat (hips breaking parallel) will recruit the glutes much more than a partial squat. As the glutes are used in hip extension, and most sporting situations require the use of explosive movements through the hip, a full depth squat will give you the most transfer effect into your sport.
