PERSONAL TRAINER INSTRUCTION  :

Smith Back Squat

Stand slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Keeping your weight in your midfoot and heels, slowly lower your body down into the squat position. Be sure to keep your torso upright with a straight / neutral spine, knees behind toes and weight in your heels. Squat so your knees reach approximately a 90 degree angle. If you can’t squat this low, do what is comfortable for you. Exhale as you stand up by driving through the heels. Consciously activate the gluteus maximus (buttocks) at the top of the repetition.

This exercise is foundational to all other movements and everyday living. We encourage you to seek the guidance of one of our personal trainers near you when learning this exercise. It can be a challenging task trying to re-learn a movement that you have done through your whole life.
