No matter how big or small your squat or deadlift is, you need to do this stretch from Men’s Health Fitness Director B.J. Gaddour. The shin box switch is designed to increase your hip rotation and unglue any tight areas in the joint’s capsule, which can increase your range of motion during lower-body lifts and protect your lower spine. Gaddour calls it one of the most important mobility drills for the lower body.
Never let your knees go past your feet. You’ll end up with some raggedy knees (been there, done that). Start with 50 a day. In just 3 weeks you’ll notice a major difference (if you’re eating well, of course!).
he best way to learn how to squat correctly is to do squats facing a wall. Bring your toes to the wall, almost touching, then sit down. Stay looking straight so you learn to keep your torso up. Sit as low as you can go then hold the seated position for 5-10 seconds and repeat.
