This isnt a rehab post, but there are a few things i need to mentiom:
So, in quick summation, I had to take a lot of time off (over a year) a while back due to a pretty bad lordosis issue. Thanks to a Chiropractor and a lot of research in mobility it’s a lot better.
Basically, my training is 2 days on 1 day off. I have a pretty standard chest/tri, back/bi, Legs, shoulders routine (currently working around what I assume is a shoulder impingement from my last job)
And I suck ass at squats. Always have. I’m 6’3 210lbs, post back injury, and suck worse than ever.
I know for a fact a lot of it is my ankle mobility, and a weakened core, both of which I’m probably over compensating on fixing, but it’s a start.
So here are some questions:
Are there exercises I can perform first before squat that would translate into an easier way to keep form?
I prefer lowbar deep squats, but obviously isn’t ideal with my ankle mobility, is there something I can do to open my ankles up immediately?
Should I simply squat more often? This regiment rounds out to about 1 day of legs a week, occasionally 2. (Plus conventional deadlift on back day)
Plus any other tips in general? I’ve lifted for a few years, but just treat me as a novice for this, I’ve never been great at legs.
