FITNESS, REHABILITATION

[SQUAT]

…what’s the big fuss…

The squat is a full body exercise, every muscle in your body is challenged when you squat; the legs and hips push the weight up, the abs and lower back tense for stability and the arms are used to pin the bar onto the back (when using weight)

// Squats Build Muscle faster than any other exercise as it is a compound exercise that stresses your entire body as a unit. The stress put on your body by squats triggers a hormonal release of testosterone which aids faster muscle production

// Squats help build explosive strength that carries over to most competitive sports, therefore increasing performance

// INJURY REDUCTION! A main concern for TRIPLE FIT is rehabilitation; but what’s better than preventative measures before the damage is done!  Performing squats with proper form reduces the chance of injuring yourself as you are improving and maintaining hip flexibility and also improving the stability of your knees

PROPER FORM-

// Start with your hips, sit back into the squat like you would sit down on a seat

// Check your knees; make sure that your knee cap is tracking in the same direction as your toes

// Keep your weight distributed towards your heel and squat down – make sure your hips bend before your knees

// At the bottom position of the squat your hip muscles should be tight – storing energy. Use this energy to help you bounce out of the bottom of the squat. “Bounce” back up off your hips, not knees

// When standing up from the squat concentrate on squeezing your butt and drive your hips up

Well there’s the TRIPLE FIT theory on squats, now go do some.
