Do you have trouble squatting deep?

Do you find that your legs just lock up half way down and that it feels very unnatural to break parallel and do a full squat?

Of all the exercises out there the squat is one of the best moves you can do. And it's also one of the hardest moves to do. Not only because it's so physically demanding, but it's a technical lift and no body in their right mind wants to get under a loaded barbell and do deep squats.

Part of the problem why most guys have trouble doing deep full range of motion squats is that they lack the flexibility in their hips and ankles to squat down to a full squatting position. So one thing you can do is just practice holding the bottom of a squat and getting comfortable with that position.

Back in the old days people never had trouble with this because they used to shit in the woods and they'd have to literally do a deep squat in order to take a dump. But with the modern invention of indoor toilets we no longer have to squat deep. The toilet has taught everyone to do half squats.

To help develop the flexibility and confidence to do a full squat I recommend starting off in the smith machine. This will allow you to squat down without the fear of falling forwards or backwards. Then once you are confident with your form in the smith machine squat, you can try doing free weight barbell squats. Just start off with the empty barbell and get used to the proper form. Once you can do full deep squats with the empty barbell then you can gradually start adding weight.

Give these squatting tips a try for yourself and let me know how they work for you by leaving me a comment below.
