Get Better Results From Your Squats -For A Tight Toned Booty!

Are you about ready to give up on squats all together since you’re not seeing the results you want? There’s a pretty good chance you’re missing out on the benefits of this exercise because you’re just too tight to gain the proper form to produce the results.

Want to find out if this is so?

Try this: When you get ready to perform a squat, make sure your heels are firmly planted on the floor. If they’re not, or you can’t keep them there throughout the exercise, you’re just not getting the most from your time. In order to see the results you’re after, you’re going to need to loosen up your hip flexors.

Here’s how: Hold on to the sides of a squat rack or stairwell. Now, lower yourself down until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Hold that position for 30 seconds. Return to a standing position and repeat this stretch five times.

Once you’re loosened up, try that squat again. If your heels stay on the ground, you’ve gained the proper form. If they don’t, keep working on loosening up those hip flexors. It can take a little time to get them limber enough to enable you to get the most from your squats.

How To Ensure Proper Form All The Time

If you’re concerned that form is getting in your way in other exercises, as well, there are some things you can do easily to correct that. Here are just a few:

  1. Work stretching into your routine – While most people do “warm up” before they exercise, they don’t necessarily spend the time they need to properly stretch out the muscle groups they’re focusing on. Make stretching more of a priority. It’s even a good idea to keep stretching in your routine on days when you don’t plan on working out. This will help your body feel better and more able to tackle the day. Plus, it’s a great way to avoid the injuries that tightness can present.
  2. Hydrate – It’s important to lubricate the muscles with proper hydration. Drink at least 1.5 liters of water a day.
