Pssssst. Hey. Hey you. Yeah you. Are you sick and tired of your clients (or yourself, whatever) not doing their squats properly? Does it make you want to scratch out your corneas with Charlie Sheen’s fingernails, and god only knows what else may be on them? Well look no further, for I give you one of the best methods of teaching a squat progression on the face of the planet, the wall facing squat. However, for some reason I can’t get an embedded video clip in here, so click the link here to scope it out, then come right back and read the rest.
Where I stole it from: Pavel Tsats……. Tats……. Uh, Thats……….. Some Russian guy. You know the one. Yeah, him.
Why it’s Awesome: It absolutely does not allow you to cheat or lean or do any of the common crap that may make you look like you ride the short bus to the gym wearing a hockey helmet and enjoying the sight of your own feet for an hour or two. No no, not you. By saddling up nice and creepy to a wall, not only can you look like you’re making sweet dirty filthy love to a slab of drywall, but it forces you to re-distribute your weight into the middle of the foot instead of on your heels, and makes you move your ankles and hips and spine to keep from falling over. And trust me, when you are making violent uncomfortable love to the wall, falling over will only make you look like you ain’t ready for that jelly. Plus, it helps to get your squat lookin tight so that when you drop it like it’s hot, you can show who the true ruler of the world is, and it sure ain’t someone saying “Winning” every ten seconds.
Aaaaaaaaand I’m out!!
