HOW TO SQUAT: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO CONSIDER

EQUIPMENT

Equipment can make a big difference in your squat performance, especially when you’re under a lot of weights. Here are a few things you can put on that can make you a better squatter.

  • FOOTWEAR. At least, you need to use a hard-soled shoe.
  • BELT. A good belt will give your core something to brace against, will protect your lower back, and will keep you more upright.
  • KNEE WRAPS OR SLEEVES. Knee wraps and sleeves help keep your knees warm and provide some extra support.
  • CHALK. in a low-bar squat, chalk can help keep the bar on your back and keep it from rolling.
  • WRIST WRAPS. Wrist wraps help keep your wrist straighter and can help prevent wrist and elbow pain.

EXECUTION

When it comes time to squat, a lot of people get under the bar and just go for it. This is a mistake. You should have a repeatable plan for getting under the bar and stepping out.

  • My problem is: I seem to have tight hamstrings and tight ankles. I did the ankle test and my heels lift at about 3 cm distance from the wall. I feel the tension in the ankles themselves and in the achilles tendon. Is there a way to loosen them up? Can I use weights under my heels instead of lifting shoes (much debated here)?
