corrective exercise, deep squat, tibial internal rotation

Chad-VaughnI picked this one up from 2 time olympian and 8 time national champion olympic weight lifter Chad Vaughn at the Power Monkey Camp this past fall.

As described earlier, adequate tibial internal rotation is important for achieving a deep squat.  If you’re lacking tibial internal rotation you might find your feet spinning out at the bottom of a squat or just having trouble getting your knees out over the toes in general.

I like to put this in either my warm-up, cool down or between sets of a strength exercise.  Give it a shot and let me know what you think.  Works for Chad Vaughn, works for me.

Can’t argue much with olympians,
