How to Do Squats with Dale Collison of CrossFit Duluth

Air Squats, Front Squats, Back Squats and Overhead Squats

At some point we all have to sit down or get up from the ground. That's why being able to properly squat is an important functional movement.

Start with your heels shoulder width apart and focus on keeping your knees in an outward position while keeping your torso upright.

For Air Squats, try to squat low enough that the crease of your hip is below your knee.

Once you get your technique down for your air squat, you can add on that by mixing in different kinds of squats.

For front squats, get the bar racked right up on your shoulders - right up against your neck - elbows facing forward.

For back squats, rest the bar on your shoulders, avoiding that neck bone, and keep your elbows back.

For overhead squats, make sure your arms get locked out and press the bar above your head.
