We are getting closerrrrrr to the workout 🤩 don’t forget to make some time for YOU and join me LIVE Sunday May 22nd at 10AM EST.
Take a look at this quickie video demo to understand exactly what I’m talking about it.
Once you nail down the assisted squat, progress to connecting with your breath + great position using load in this goblet squat variation and really get that booty going! This is for you Erika 💛
If something’s not working for you, don’t be so attached that you can’t let it go for something else (that has the potential to work better). Don’t hold so tight to your beliefs that you miss out on all the good shit.
Today I’m talking the stack + squat setup.
After having 2 kids in like 2 years my back was killing me. I was lacking adductors, and walking like a duck. Couldn’t “find” my glutes for shit. I wasn’t about to give up strength training, so I had to figure it out. 2 years later I am squatting heavier than I did in my twenties…PAIN FREE.
I can remember getting my first massage after adopting the heels elevated squatty squat and my left ITB ( which was always a trouble spot for me) was like F*CKING BUTTER.
No pain/ tension at all. IT WAS INSANE.
I didn’t roll it or stretch it. In fact I hadn’t rolled or “stretched” in about 6 months prior to this massage.
The only changes I had made were working on breathing + positioning that were optimal for MY BODY.
It’s more complicated then a single email BUT I’m going to give you some tips so listen up…it might just be exactly what you’ve been told not to do 🤯, but I promise I would never steer you wrong.
- Elevate your heels and allow your knees to travel forward as your heels stay heavy. (Scroll down to CHEAP WEDGE, these are my favorite)
- Use your hamstrings to pull you down.
- Think ribs and hips stack.
The stack takes practice BUT you are going to get SO MUCH MORE out of your workouts when your ribs aren’t flaring and your pelvis is underneath you. When you start to understand what is actually happening each time you squat you can start to FEEL the proper muscles waking up.
Let me know if you have any questions!
