The squat is one of the foundational strength exercises that everyone should have in their repertoire. By training your squat with proper mechanics, you can build significant amounts of strength in your trunk and lower body thereby lowering your risk of injury and increasing your athletic performance.
By learning proper squat technique you will be on your way to improving the foundation of your training program, whether you train for general health, physique goals, athletic preparedness, or a combination of these goals.
The class will be led by Josh and Zac, two of SF Iron's strength coaches who have years of experience teaching the barbell lifts and competing in strength sports. The seminar will be divided into a lecture component and hands on practice. During the lecture component, coaches Josh and Zac will explore the detailed biomechanics and cues involved in the squat. Once the theoretical foundation is established, you will practice the squat with the coaches, getting feedback to help you improve form and technique. At the end of the seminar, there will be a question and answer session with the coaches.
Whether you are new to the squat or if you are looking to take your form on this lift to the next level, this seminar is for you. The style of the instruction you receive during the seminar will be tailored to your skill level.
