Well, hello hello!
Today I’m back & answering some HIGHLY asked questions about Squats.
I think it’s important to note I have made some major glute progress with no heavy squats at all. HALLELUJAH.
I still think squats are a very good movement for quads & back.
Heavy squats are SO challenging for me. I actually kind of hate them, so I love to try to incorporate them every now & then just to really PUSH myself. Anyone else?
Right now I’m only comfortable really squatting heavy when I have someone to critique my form, because FORM is more important than ANYTHING.
If you have bad form, you aren’t doing much.
With that said, I have some quick DO’s & DON’Ts for ya with the help of my co-workers!
Questions we will go over:
1st: What The Hell Are BELTS Used For When Lifting?
2nd: Is Squeezing Your Glutes At The Top Of A Squat EFFECTIVE?
I’m also sharing some workouts I did while traveling to Manteca Fitness Evolution for training for my new job.
The gym there is BEAUTIFUL.
It was a very, very long day of training for my new position as a Fitness Instructor so I had to get up and move around afterwards- a HARD workout is always needed after sitting all day long.
It’s fun to play at a new gym, especially when it is brand new with the best-of-the-best equipment!!
If you are ever in the area you have to go!
The Hydromassage beds alone will blow your mind.
I had 2 hydro-massages one of the days because I was soo sore from my workouts.
If you don’t know:
Hydro-massages reduce anxiety levels, gives a sense of well-being, improves the ability to monitor stress signals, gives a feeling of peace of mind, it also helps to alleviate discomfort caused by pregnancy, provides with a relaxed state of mental alertness, helps treat sore muscles & more!
I traveled to Manteca for training with 2 of my co-workers, Jake & Jake (ha-ha).
They are incredibly athletic and very educated when it comes to health & fitness so I was STOKED when we decided to put on a workout.
Jake answers the highly requested questions about form & equipment so stay tuned for the video below! 🙂
