The Butt Wink
:-)What Your Squat Says About You
from SpotMeGirl.com - http://goo.gl/uD38FPBesides being a super odd name for a weightlifting problem, the butt wink is pretty common amongst lifters and can be seen in almost every type of lifting. It is when the squatter’s back rounds under too early in the squat movement. This means that they are putting undue tension on their lower back and knees and often can’t increase their weights significantly because they will eventually begin suffering from back pain. Now, there is a depth where the wink has to occur, but it is at the very bottom of the squat or the physical location of what A2G implies. The biggest reasons for the “butt wink” are improper squat training, tight hamstrings, and a weak lower back.
