It’s time for another episode of STRONGER TV. In the last episode we went over “knee cave in” and whether or not this is a problem or a natural part of the squat. Kiefer and I got to talking and wanted to tackle a similar issue that we see during the squat, a hip shift.
If you’ve been coaching or training for long enough you’ve probably seen it. Someone descends into the bottom of the squat and they start to shift towards one side. Maybe they start to rotate a bit at the hips. Maybe this doesn’t occur in the bottom of the squat but as they’re coming out of the hole of the squat. They are a lot of flavors to this common issue.
In today’s episode we go over this common issue, whether or not it’s a problem and how to correct it if you believe it is an issue.
That’s it! Hopefully now you understand the hip shift better and how to address it in your own training and with your athletes.
