3 Tips To Help You Not Fall Forward When Squatting
1. Try to look up or on the horizon, not down.
Some coaches say look down. I think this can work for some people, but most of the athletes I coach get better success when looking on the horizon, looking straight ahead or even looking up. The body follows the eyes. In my opinion you look down you go down. But it’s important to find what works for you.
A simple saying that always stuck with me “Look Down Go Down”.
3. Make sure your elbows are not pointing too high.
If your elbows flare up and high this can tip your body forward. If your elbows flare up and high this will push your body forward. Try to pull your elbows back and tight and slightly have them pointed up. This will keep your upper back tight and allow you to stay more upright.
Give these 3 tips a try and let me know if they help you.
