EP.112 | Counterbalance Squats for the Win!

Counterbalance Squats FTW

If you've never tried out counterbalance squats in your preparation for squatting or catching a heavy load, boy are you missing out!  For those of you lacking in the ankle mobility department, this will be highly effective for you.

How To:

-Press the plate in front of you at roughly a 45 degree angle as you descend into a full range of motion squat

-50 to 75 reps throughout the course of your warmup is a great place to start

-Utilizing a tempo (i.e. few seconds down, pausing at the bottom, etc.) is a great way to ensure that you hit full range of motion with an upright torso
