How to scale and regress a squat

Exercise Regressions 

Altering or regressing our exercises can allow us to improve the quality of our movement and in turn, perform better! 

For example, using a bench or box behind you to perform a back squat can allow you to:  

  1. Lift more weight 

  2. Squat deeper 

  3. Reduce forward translation of the weight 

  4. Improve the relationship between hip and knee movement 

  5. Keep heels on the ground therefore providing more stability
