Garden Squats of the Heavy Variety

I’ve been reviewing Gubernatrix’s video on How to Squat Heavy. It seems I’ve been doing it wrong all along.

I tend to split the action into two distinct parts. The first where I load up my shoulders and descend to my haunches.

Then I pause…….for quite a long time.

I use the pause to ponder my options. Have I bitten off more than I can chew? Can I make it back up? What happens if I can’t?

Then the second part starts and I stand. So far successfully, but it’s only a matter of time.

Watching Sally’s video I see it is all one continuous motion and all completed (I think) on one breath. Breath in – down – up – breathe out.

I better get out there and try again.

I'd love to hear from you....
