Foundational Movement

Air Squat


  • The stance is with the heels at shoulder width
  • Full extension at hips and knees
  • Weight on heels
  • Keep the chest up and brace the abdominals to maintain a neutral spine
  • Execution:
  • Hips travel back and down
  • Bottom of squat is when the hip crease is below the top of the kneecap (“below parallel”)
  • Knees stay in line with the feet
  • Head position is neutral
  • Finish:
  • Return to full extension at the hips and knees to complete the movement


Back Squat (3 second pause at the bottom): E2MOM for 10 minutes (5 sets) – 3 reps each

Be sure to maintain proper lumbar, have your partner watch the clock, for the full 3 second pause

*Squat therapy for new folks/immature squats. YOU SHOULD BE LOGGING THE WEIGHT YOU USE EACH WEIGHT.  IF YOU AREN’T, START TRACKING TO ENSURE YOU’RE GOING UP IN WEIGHT.  I want you to be safe, but I don’t want you to limit yourself from excelling.
