Hey, I hope you are doing great.
I just got out of stage after presenting to over a hundred of professionals about the ins and outs of how to create a blog and YouTube videos.
It was great to share and help so many people.
Okay, let me get to what I got for you today.
Like the usual, I got a video for you.
In this video, I wanted to go through an exercise that will help you overcome your difficulty going through a squat exercise.
A lot of times when people have pain when squatting, they completely avoid performing the squat. If it’s painful, you don’t want to do more of it. But you should not completely get rid of this exercise in your routine because your performance in squatting will get worst and worst. And then you are putting more loads on the other things like your hips which will increase the risk of being injured. Thus, I recommend doing the modified or assisted squat using the suspension trainer.

Andrea will demonstrate it.
Suspension Trainer Squat
This modification or assisted squat is really good. You got the straps and you are grabbing them. The suspension trainer is fixed to a really good position. Your arms are straight and then you are leaning back. You are going into squatting position. The feet are both hip with apart. The movement is happening in the hips and knees then you are coming back up. The shin is vertical to the floor so there’s less stress on the knee as supposed to having the knee forward. The rest of the body is in a nice good straight alignment.
By doing this exercise, you are working on the range of motion on the knee, strengthening the muscles around the knee which is important by getting help from the hips and offloading some of your weight on the suspension trainer.
So give that exercise a go. If you have difficulty squatting, perform the suspension trainer squat. If you keep avoiding the squat exercise, you can put more stress on your hips and knees then you will be really in trouble.
