Who loves squats?
Comment your PR.
My journey started with an improper squat. While squatting I felt a sharp pain at the front of my right knee that radiated up into my thigh. No warning sign. No previous issue. No reason I could see.
Eventually this lead to pain in my left hip, right shoulder and headaches that would get to migraine status a few times a month. I had to leave the culinary industry that I loved so much behind because I truly could not stand for more then 30 minutes without major pain.
Now I am back to lifting and moving the way I want to because I learned how to balance my posture and move with freedom. •••♤°°°

#roadtopincha Day 6:
More shoulder strengtheners!
Actually, this strengthens more than that, but that’s why I love it. This move (courtesy of 22MHC) is one that I know has greatly contributed to my control in pincha.
I’ve had knee trouble since junior high, so I don’t squat deep. That’s okay though, everything is still engaged, and driving that weight up at the top of the squat instead of while I’m just standing there is what makes this extra yummy.
