I am pretty weary of the “squat debate” that has taken place on the internet recently. I think the points of contention that are generating blog posts ad nausem are pretty petty and small. So this post can serve to end that debate, and we can move onto better topics.
The problem, with the debate, is that internet trainers are talking about “a lift” and not a movement. If we were actually talking about the movement of the squat, we wouldn’t be saying stuff like “knees out” and “wide stance” or “oly stance” (ugh, writing oly hurts me a bit).
No, if we were talking about the movement of a squat, we would be talking about stance and mechanics that would allow us to do it across disciplines, and in broader uses like resting in a squat, and the other popular use for a squat stance (insert poop joke here).
The video below is a framework for how we teach a squat, not the back squat, the front squat, the goblet squat, etc. No we are not teaching a lift, we are teaching a movement, and that’s where most people are getting it wrong.
*This is also a perfect way to squat if you are an Olympic lifter, there is immediate carryover from one lift to the other.
