TAG A FRIEND WHO NEEDS TO LEARN ABOUT SQUATS! Having problems learning how to Squat properly? Well let me show you a way to address this problem, later we will talk about ways to improve on your flexibility to get full range of motion when squatting. 1: Place your feet shoulder width apart, feet slightly rotated externally to open up your hips. Make sure the top of your toes are almost touching the wall. 2: MANTAINING a neutral back, with your chest up, squat down until you are hips are parallel to the floor. If you lack flexibility and can't squat parallel without falling back, have a bench or chair available to you so when you squat down the top of your "COCONUTS" touches the bench slightly. 3: if you can do this in front of a mirror it will be great, since you could see your form and establish a connection with the muscles you're activating and how the movement is supposed to be performed. This is a technique I use to help my clients learn proper form. Remember form over everything, if you can't perform proper form you will create muscle instabilities & never get the full benefits of squats. #misbehave #godschild _______________________________________ MENCIONA A UN AMIGO QUE QUIERA APRENDER A HACER SENTADILLAS: Tienen problemas aprendiendo como hacer SENTADILLAS con buena forma? Aqui esta la solucion. 1: pocision a los pies a la anchura de los hombros con los pies ligeramente abiertos externamente. Asegúrate que la punta de los dedos del pie estén tocando la pared. 2: manteniendo una espina neutral con el pecho ergido, hagan la sentadilla hasta estar paralelo al suelo. Si no tienen la flexibilidad de llegar paralelo sin caerse hacia detrás, pongan un banco detrás de ustedes para cuando se "sienten" los COCOS 😁 toquen la punta del banco ligeramente. 3: si pueden hacer esto viéndose en un espejo seria genial asi establecen una conexión con el movimiento y el músculo que están tratando de trabajar. Esto ayudará a que aprendas. Esta es la technica que uso para enseñar a mis clientes principiantes. Si no practican buena forma, no solo estarán creando inestabilidades musculares pero no obtendrán los beneficios de este ejercicio. #hijadecristo
