Dynamic Squat Stretching

Dynamic Squat Stretching Playlist

Assisted Squat Stretching & Squat with Butt Lift

Performing squats requires normal mobility of the hips, knees and ankles. At all times attention to neutral lumbar positioning promotes proper squat mechanics that are essential to the addition of increased loading during your workout.

The Squat with Butt Lift

The Squat with Butt Lift provides a great dynamic warm-up to the hips, knees and ankles. The butt lift aspect promotes hamstring stretching in a dynamic lengthening stretch. Be sure to maintain neutral lumbar positioning by avoiding flexion, or rounding of the lumbar spine.

The Assisted Squat Stretch 

An Assisted Squat Stretch provides controlled movement to emphasize joint mobility of the hips, knees, ankles. Attention is given to maintaining good spinal posture - maintaining a lordotic lumbar curve. Perform prior to squat training for a dynamic warm-up to your training program.
