Squat To Stand Mobility Workout
There are 2 things you’ll achieve by including Squat to Stands in your warm-up routine:
- One, you will boost your hip mobility (stretches hamstrings & adductors) so you can Squat deeper.
This can eliminate nagging knee/back pain
- Two, you’ll increase your thoracic mobility (upper-back/chest). This helps achieving the low squat position while improving your posture.
HERE IS HOW YOU DO IT:
Bend over to grab the bottom of your feet, and then “pull” yourself into a deep squat position. As you move into the bottom position, focus on forcing the chest up, pushing the knees out, and keeping the heels down. Hold for a count of one-one-thousand.
From this bottom position, raise the hips back up without letting go of your feet. Hold this hamstring stretch for a count of one-one-thousand, and then pull yourself back down into the deep squat position.
