For many years now I’ve been squatting for the first time and I really enjoyed it! The goal was to practice the movement and doing it as smoothly as possible. I hope it looks good from the outside! I feel like I’m going to love this workout.
At first sight, squatting looks quite simple practice, but you have to pay careful attention to the correct execution because you can have a lot of problems if you are not focused enough. Here are some basic rules:
- Keep your chin up, you should look straight ahead.
- Hold your back straight, push your shoulders backwards, and the lower part of our back should be tight and straight (not bent).
- The position of the barbell from the point of view of the development of the vastus is appropriate if it is above the shoulder, exactly under the seventh vertebra of the neck, so that it lies entirely on the trapezius muscle.
- Generally, the speed of movement must be slow, especially when one learn squatting. The key to maximizing the elevated weight, muscle development and safety is to focus on the proper way of executing.
- Never bounce at the lower position!
- Hold back of breath is very important as it generates more pressure in the abdomen and chest to help fixing the spinal column and upper body, which, in turn, makes it possible to develop more powerful push and thus to develop larger and stronger muscles. Do not be reluctant to breathe as you wish among the repetitions.
