I have a question about this exercise (High-bar, medium-stance squats Limping Into November)…here is the description from the article…
“Immediately prior to commencing the descent, bend your knees slightly, suck in the lower abdomen, and squeeze your cheeks. This will “set” your pelvis in a slightly posteriorly rotated position. As you lower the weight, keep the hips in line with the spine. In other words, maintain the aforementioned hip position. Don’t misinterpret this, though. You can flex forward at the hips, just don’t change the hip-spine relationship.”
What exactly does posteriorly rotated position mean? It seems that when I “suck in my abdomen and squeeze my cheeks” my pelvis moves forward and I can’t squat without falling back.
Is that the way you are supposed to do it? Do I just need to practice the form?
