What are the benefits of back squatting?
The back squat will improve your lower back strength. You will feel more power and strength in your glutes, hamstrings, and quads. This new found power will translate to other lifts and movements. Back Squatting will build a strong core due to bracing and stabilizing the weight moved. The Back Squat is often referred to as “The King of All Exercises” due to its ability to build strength, power, and size.
We have found success in Back Squatting personally and with our athletes. Stormy has gained over 150# on her back squat. When lifting heavy, she and other athletes have found that their ankle and foot pain lessens and core strength improves, as well has their posterior chain (Glutes, Hamstrings, and Quads) engage more on their other lifts.
Building power and strength is the ultimate goal. This program is mainly focused on the back squat. There will be accessory movements, cardio and conditioning workouts to coordinate optimal success.
We want you to achieve all the goals you have for yourself and build a layer of confidence that can’t be destroyed. We are excited for you to unlock your potential in starting this Back Squat Program. Have fun!Features
