Squat depth is important to hit a full range of motion, maximising the activation of muscle fibres in the movement —> better gains.
🚨 Some common reasons you might be missing squat depth to work on are…
1) Poor ankle mobility. A sign of this could be a tendency for your heels to lift off the floor when performing a squat. Tight calves could be a potential cause of ankle tightness.
2) Poor hip mobility. This is common if you tend to spend long periods of time sitting which will cause the hip flexors to become tight and overactive. Stretching and mobilising the hips before squatting can help.
3) Quad dominance. Quad dominance causes a muscular imbalance when performing the squat meaning they take the load more than the hamstrings and glutes. Working on strengthening the posterior chain can help address this imbalance.
4) Anatomy. The femur to torso ratio can have a big impact on the ability to squat deep. Those with longer legs may benefit form taking a slightly wider, more sumo style stance to help achieve squat depth.
Look in to each of these 4 areas and work on incorporating the necessary adjustments/improvements into your training programme. Be consistent, have patience and with time your squat depth will improve 👌
Happy training 😉🏋️♀️💪
Excellent effort and work rate from the @procisionreading footballers today on the spin bikes.
🚨Spin has a huge number of benefits not limited to and including…
👉development of leg strength
👉improvements in cardiovascular health and performance
👉increasing core stability
Give it a go if you haven’t already and get ready to sweat, listen to some high powered music, work hard but most importantly have fun 🤪💪🚴♀️🔥
The @theatriumhealthclub has at least one spin class on every day of the week so come and try it out!
Each day is a new opportunity for learning and growth. Time will pass anyway so start now and embrace the present. If you start taking small steps today imagine where you could be in a couple of weeks, month, years. Don’t be afraid of ‘failing’-this is where we build and develop the most. I’ll leave you with one of my favourite quotes:
“For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.”

⚖️ BALANCE ⚖️
Throughout life your priorities will change. The key to a successful, healthy and fulfilling life is finding balance between our different and sometimes competing priorities.
Take time out to reflect and review where your priorities are and adjust/adapt according to your goals. Make a plan which pays consideration to contingencies, allowing room for the balancing act of everyday life.
