This is a VERY simple trick that help you squat without pitching forward and turning the squat into a bad-looking Good Morning.

One of the main problems that causes that pitching forward in the upper body when squatting is lack of flexibility and mobility in the calves and ankles. If your calves are tight, as soon as you start sitting back, your tight calves and ankles will block the movement.

In order to continue the squat, the upper body then has to come forward to compensate.

Fixing this is simple…just stretch the calves before you squat. It can be with just about any good calf stretch, as long as you hold it for at least 30 seconds on each leg then repeat.  Aim for at least 2 full minutes under stretch for each leg.

This will improve your form pretty much immediately.  You’ll be amazed at how much of a difference this simple tip makes!
