Alignments: We squat with toes We squat with angled out... toes forward... To SCREEN To PERFORM The great squat debate: toes forward or angled out? It's actually a trick question, the answer is both. Let me explain. The argument is simple. I believe ALMOST ALL OF US should have the capability to perform a bodyweight squat with the toes relatively straightforward (if you want to get nerdy 'neutral' means 5-7 degrees of toe out). We screen the squat this way to illuminate weak links we can work on. If you cannot squat this way, more than likely there are some things you need to work on (mobility for example). That being said, there will always be a few individuals who are simply unable to get into a deep squat position due to abnormal anatomical reasons (an excessive angle in the way the hip-femur align aka femoral anteversion is one example). With that said, most athletes should be able to reach ass to grass with a squat. I recommend turning your toes out SLIGHTLY when you squat with a barbell for optimal performance. As soon as you pick up a barbell, the squat now becomes an exercise. For this reason, there are slight changes in the movement pattern that are more “sport specific”. This includes turning the toes out slightly. Doing so creates a mechanical advantage for the squat. Not only does it give us a slightly wider base of support, but it does not challenge our pelvic control and mobility to the fullest extent. This means someone with mobility restrictions can squat deeper with a better technique elsewhere. This is the difference between the movement of the squat and the exercise. Screening should point out and illuminate limitations in how we move. Training should reinforce and strengthen our current movement capabilities. When coaching athletes, it’s your job to know the difference between screening and training. There's nothing wrong with barbell squatting with a forward foot, but it's not right for EVERYONES anatomy. __________________________________ Squat SquatUniversity Powerlifting weightlifting crossfit workout gym fit fitspo crossfitopen fitness squats training physicaltherapy strongman oly olympicweightlifting mobility

Alignments: The Difference Between Soulmates and Life Partners Soul Mate: Someone who is aligned with your soul and is sent to challenge, awaken and stir different parts of you in order for your soul to transcend to a higher level of consciousness and awareness. Once the lesson has been learnt, physical separation usually occurs. Life Partner: A companion, a friend, a stable and secure individual who you can lean on, trust and depend on to help you through life. There is a mutual feeling of love and respect and you are both in sync with each others needs and wants. We have many Soulmates in this life but their purpose is all the same- they are here to challenge and awaken us so our soul can evolve into a higher state of consciousness. Our Soulmates always arrive when we are ready for them and not a moment sooner. They arrive when we are ready to learn the lessons that we were destined to fulfill. Soulmate relationships are often not forever, this is because sometimes the relationship can be too intense or there is a certain karmic energy to the relationship that sees it come to a close once the necessary lessons have been learnt. Soulmates can also be friends and relatives; they don’t always have to be romantic partners. Regardless of this, you will always feel a strong, energetic connection or a past life history together. Many of us spend years obsessing about meeting a Soulmate, but fail to notice what we are really asking for. When we ask for a Soulmate we are really asking to grow and develop in consciousness, and not understanding this can sometimes block the energy from coming to us. If you really want to connect with a Soulmate, you need to align with your own soul. You need to discover who you are, honor yourself and begin following your heart. When you align with your true self, you are then instantly in the vibration of meeting your soul-mate. love BeHappy life truelove instadaily happy quotes true mind soul God soulmate quote peace sunday live magic quoteoftheday happiness instalove experience good unconditionallove loving couple lesson

Alignments: Knee Stabilit The ability to keep the knees in direct alignment with the foot (minimizing any side-to-side movement) SOU AT UMIVERSITY Ideally the knee should track in the exact same position during the entire squat. Here's a great example of an athlete @max_lang_weightlifting with optimal knee stability (squatting 170kg - 374lbs for 10 reps). The knees of some athletes waver slightly (often moving inward toward the toes) on the ascent of the squat, or even worse cave-in completely (called a valgus collapse). The longer an athlete has been lifting with this type of poor movement - the harder it is to break the habit. If they move this way for too long - it becomes a crutch and they unfortunately need to move that way in order to keep lifting as much weight. While a slight knee waver isn’t a horrible technique error it is NOT optimal from a mechanical standpoint. This means improved knee control (less side to side movement) will give you the potential to lift more weight. The knees were designed to bend and straighten - any Lateral movement during the squat is only wasted energy that could be used to drive more weight up! Lifting heavy weights poorly will make you stronger. However, it will make you stronger in the WRONG WAY by reinforcing poor technique. In the end - moving big weight poorly will lead to pain. It's time to teach our athletes that it doesn’t matter how MUCH they can squat, if they can’t squat WELL. While technique perfection is something most of us will never achieve, we should always strive to attain it. __________________________________ Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.
