Hi. This question has probably been asked before, sorry. I’m trying to correct my squat form. I’ve read all the articles I could find, and there are some things I don’t understand. When someone says the hips should be the first thing to move, push your butt back, sit back not down, or the knees should not be the first thing to move, I don’t understand what they are saying. Some of it is vague and some of it just seems to contradict common sense.
For instance, if I’m not bending my knees first then I just don’t know what to do because forcing my butt back doesn’t make sense. It is back. It’s farther back than anything else on my body. I don’t understand moving the hips. Also, should I be lowering my torso when I squat, like I’m doing a good morning, or should the angle between my torso and the ground remain unchanged throughout the exercise? Thanks.
