I use PRT on most of my clients. It works great for many musculoskeletal syndromes, but I've never used it for concussions. You can learn how to do it for FREE!

It's a discussion that will never die. Bro-science continues to purport bad information, subsequently, people continue to restrict knee movement and it leads to low back injury. Squat properly! #Fitness #WeightTraining #Lift #Exercise

#Quads vs. #Hamstrings #glutes vs. Adductors: How simple modifications to the barbell #squat can target these muscles. 

The barbell squat is a great exercise, because it hits all of the major muscle groups in the hip and thigh. However, through small modifications in your squat technique you can target certain muscles better than others.

To target the quads: Have a slightly narrower stance (no wider than hip width). Keep your spine as vertical as possible (little to no bending at the hips). Elevating the heels 1-2" will help allow for a vertical spine alignment.

To target the hams and glutes: Hold a stance slightly wider than hip width. Angle the feet outward slightly and bend over more at the hips during the squat. A deep squat here will also increase the activity of the glutes. 

To target the adductors: Hold a wide stance with the feet angled 45 degrees outward and go to quad parallel depth. The Sumo squat, might be a better option to target the adductors than a traditional squat. 

Front squat vs. Back squat: Data shows little difference in muscle requirement between these two squat techniques. However, studies have shown that the front squat has lower compressive and shear forces at the knee and back. So those with LB or knee issues might choose the front squat.

Over 80% of the adult population will experience back pain at some point throughout life.

Today, I joined Dr. Ahmad, Associate Director of the Carle Spine Institute, and Clint Jackson, of Jackson Chiropractic to discuss the causes of back pain, how to prevent it and exercises to help ease the pain. 

If you know someone with back pain, give this a share.
