The squat exercise focuses on a balanced compound full body motion with particular load through the lower limb – the hips, knees and ankles.
The squat is the most primitive movement pattern so proper execution and performance allow for full active-ROM from those joints. The correct movement pattern and technique allow for a total body workout which focuses on strength, stability and mobility. Training for full active-ROM is also important in the squat as it allows for decreased load through the low back
Ideal execution and performance will allow good movement patterns with performance while also minimising the chance of poor technique, overloading or injury. Speak with one of our practitioners at Melbourne Osteohealth today about a personalised plan for you!
