Sticking Points- Stuck at the bottom?

If you want to squat to full depth, and you’ve been having trouble getting yourself moving out of that “hole” at the bottom of the squat, this is the video for you.  Master this one simple trick for a stronger deep squat.

Squatting past 90* at the knees, and to full depth is always my preference.  It allows you to build more overall power, preserves or improves mobility, and there’s less torque on your knees than when changing directions at 90*.  If you want to perform the Olympic lifts, you’ll also need the necessary mobility for deep squatting.  Plus, when you train your full range of motion, you’ll be able to access strength from any position when you need it in the real world.
