Mobility For The Squat

From Screening to Correctives

Mobility For The Squat: Do You Have It?

Saturday May 11: 4pm-5:45pm

Demonstrating a proper and safe squat requires adequate mobility throughout the body, specifically the hips, knees, and ankles. Additionally, it also requires significant stability and motor control. Often times, coaches and athletes can identify faulty movement patterns, but are stuck when it comes to pin-pointing specific body segments to improve upon to correct such movement fault.

The seminar is designed to help fitness professionals, clinicians, and athletes, gain an understanding of screening tools to identify any mobility issue, and warm up exercises, needed to address found deficits. 

Upon completion of the seminar, attendees are expected to have a good understanding of points of performance of a squat, common faults when squatting, joint by joint screening for the squat, and warm up correctives.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a donation-based seminar with a minimum of $5 to secure your spot, to ensure accurate attendance. At the end of the seminar, we will have the option to donate more with cash, venmo, or paypal, however this is NOT required. Recommended donation is between $5 and $75, with an even split between instructor and Strength For All. The seminar was made donation-based per the instructor’s request.
