Training tip of the week is all about squatting.
One of the more common mistakes I see with squatting is executed during the un rack. A large percentage of people will mindlessly un rack the barbell with a big arch in the low back which in turn is going to create a disconnect between the pelvis and ribcage. This will create a less than optimal position whilst also putting your low back in a more vulnerable spot.
If you notice in the 1st clip my awesome assistant un racks the bar with a big arch in his low back and almost performs a good morning to get it out. We correct this in the second attempt by cueing him to “bring his belt buckle to his chin” this will flatten out the low back and realign the pelvis and the ribcage.
Have a friend look at your squat un rack and see if this tip helps you out. If you don’t have any friends with you video your squat from the side.
