No matter how experienced you are, we can all use a reminder on proper squat form. Train smart. Avoid injury.
"If we go down to that depth, and get a full range squat like that, we're going to get a lot stronger, a lot faster."
In this video, we had Jimmy mic'd up as he was training a
MTNTOUGH'er in the LAB who was struggling with his squat form. He touches on squat depth, back rounding, knees caving and more. Jimmy also demonstrates a key banded exercise that can be done regularly to improve your squat form, and start moving more weight.
MTNTOUGH Fitness Lab located in Bozeman, MT, has established itself as the elite source for improving mental toughness, physical preparation, and performance research for the backcountry hunter, military, and first responder athlete.
They have assembled an impressive team for this task, including Alex Fichtler (Former US Navy SEAL), Ara Megerdichian (US Army Ranger, Lieutenant Colonel and former West Point Instructor), and Jimmy Alsobrook (Mountain Training Legend & National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer).
Lifelong backcountry hunter and MTNTOUGH’s founder, Dustin Diefenderfer, explains, “ We strive to find out what makes the excellent tick, and what gives them the indomitable, never quit, next ridgeline mentality and strength. We study it, measure it, test it, unpack it and then teach it to others.”
