If you spend a lot of time sitting in a chair (yeah, we all do) you may need to prepare your body a little if you want to maximize your squat.
In this video, I show you how to prepare your body for a nice deep squat and I also show you how you can use something like a tree to assist you.
This type of assisted squat is great for someone who isn’t quite able to perform a full-depth squat. This can be due to injury, excess body weight, lack of flexibility, or lack of strength. In the assisted squat, you hold onto something stable (like a tree) which helps take some pressure and balance off the legs to create an easier version of the full squat.
