Why Pause?

“Ugh, I HATE THIS. Why do you make us STOP at the BOTTOM of a SQUAT?”

Because we love you.

No, we’re not just being cruel. Pausing in the bottom of the squat not only helps build stability and confidence in the hole (the bottom of the squat), but it also helps improve flexibility and end range mobility. Holding longer teaches better bracing, better positioning, and overall better squatting. Keep your chest and elbows high, core/trunk/abs/whatever the kids these days call it tight, and sit in the squat!

You can thank us once you hit all those new PRs!
