Here’s How To Improve Your Squatting Technique With Omar Isuf


The squat is the quintessential lower body exercise. They work the entire lower body, your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and even muscles that make up the calves. They’re a large compound exercise and one of the most difficult exercises to master in the gym. In addition, the squat is a great way to burn some extra fat and give you some real functional strength gains, as well as a means of upping your testosterone.

Fortunately, there are many people out there who really know their squats and are amazing at doing them. The best part is that they are more than willing to pass on their wisdom and help people perform the perfect squat. Omar talks about correcting your squat by fixing back hyperextension and properly positioning your knee/foot. When squatting, it’s of utmost importance to know the difference between “sitting back” and extending your spine too much.

This can be fixed by squeezing the glutes before squatting, as it’ll keep your hip and pelvis in a neutral position. As said, proper form is everything when it comes to squats, so even if you think you’ve mastered the form, we still advise you to check out his video to make sure that you aren’t making any of the mistakes mentioned in the clip.
