In this edition of “Exercise of the Week,” we’re going to feature the plate squat.
The plate squat is an excellent teaching tool. Not only does it cue people to extend through their upper back, but it also trains them to brace their entire core and not just over-arch their lower back.
Basic squatting rules apply:
– Chest up, back flat
– Sit back, knees out
We’ll often integrate a band around the knees as well. This combo fixes a lot of the little flaws that people exhibit when they squat.
