Back Squat

Reminding everyone that the gym is closed Saturday and Sunday because of a certification. Go outside and play! Hike with your family or go to the track, use your fitness!

I know the video below might seem pointless, but believe it or not no one is a perfect mover. You might think you are, but I bet if you filmed yourself you’d change your mind. Or maybe you are with bodyweight, but adding weight might be a whole different story.

The point is that you can always improve and always learn something new. Sometimes in order to make changes, you have to take some steps back in a sense. Yes adding weight to a squat week after week can get you stronger for an amount of time. But at a certain point, the only thing that can get you to continue with your progress is training yourself to move as perfectly as possible. Which at times means lightening the load and slowing it all down. Even filming yourself is a great idea. Are you happy with what you saw? Would you like to show other people or are you ashamed at how poorly you moved?

Now i’m not saying that you should do this for today, because after all the goal for today is to lift a heavy load, basically until you see the heavens open up and ready to take you, that’s how heavy we want it to be. But just keep this in mind if at a point in this fitness journey you realize progress is slowing down. There is an old saying by coach Greg Glassman “Stick to the basics and when you feel you’ve mastered them it’s time to start all over again, begin anew – again with the basics – this time paying closer attention.”
