Learning to Perform the Perfect Squat

While many people find squats to be useful, it is quite surprising just how many people do them incorrectly.  Thankfully, there are a number of ways that you can learn to perform squats the right way in order to get the most of them while also reducing the risk of injury.

Here are just a few ways you can learn how to do squats the right way.

Instructional Videos

Many experts have been making videos that teach people how to perform squats and other exercises for decades.  With the internet, it is now easy to find a video on the internet that will teach you the proper squat technique for free.

Of course, you can’t quite interact with a video, so if you have questions, there won’t be anyone there to answer them for you.

Personal Trainer

Getting a personal trainer is definitely a step in the right direction, as they will be able to guide you through the entire process in order to make sure that you are doing everything correctly.  Unlike a video, they will be there to answer any questions that you might possibly have.

This, of course, costs money, so it really is only the best option for those who are looking to learn more advanced techniques while also having someone there to coach them through other exercises, as well.

A Squatting Board

The best part about a squatting board is the fact that you do not have to pay for it every time you use it, and it will also give you cues that you can’t even get directly from a personal trainer.  For instance, visual and physical cues are generally easier to get from a squatting board than from direct or indirect instruction, and that is why this is such a good option.
