Squat Errors

Most clients can squat safely, even in the absence of "perfect" technique. However, there are a few fairly common faulty movement patterns to watch out for when teaching the squat.

  1. Short range of motion
  2. Knee buckle or collapse in
  3. Excessive forward lean
  4. Rounded back/butt wink
