I apologize for the short hiatus, but Technique Tuesday is BACK, and today I’m going over the Goblet Squat. This exercise is a great early progression to begin grooving the squat pattern. As I mention in the video, a proper squat can be limited by mobility restrictions, but many times stability is the issue. Since the weight is held in front of the body at chest level in the Goblet Squat, the anterior core must really fire to keep the torso upright. This can significantly clean up squat technique for many people, and is one of the reasons I love the Goblet Squat. Check out the video and learn how to perform it correctly!
While it’s a somber day here in New England and across the country due to the events at the Boston Marathon yesterday, Matt and I have decided to carry on with our weekly edition of Technique Tuesday. Before we begin, though, we’d like to send out our thoughts and well wishes to all those affected by the explosions in Boston yesterday.
As for today’s installment of Technique Tuesday, Matt takes you through the 90/90 Split Squat Iso Hold. We love this exercise for young athletes so they can learn to “own” the split squat position. It’s also a great choice for those who are hypermobile or suffer from anterior knee pain. Check it out below!
Welcome to another edition of Technique Tuesday! In today’s installment, I go over the Eccentric Only Chin-Up. This is a good vertical pulling exercise for athletes and clients who need to get stronger in order to perform their first full range of motion chin-up. Take a look!
Today’s edition of Technique Tuesday covers the Stability Ball Rollout. This is an excellent anterior core stability exercise to use early on with young athletes and beginner clients. Take a look as I go over how to perform the exercise correctly, important coaching cues, and common mistakes.
My good friend and Cressey Performance coach, Greg Robins, just posted an article that I wrote for his site. In the article, I give you a 6-exercise progression you can use to teach your athletes proper horizontal pulling technique. Click the link below to give it a read!
Have a great weekend!
