|(Squat - 40lbs)|
I'm giving myself a 4.5/5!
I've got all good things going on, chest up, head up, shoulders back, weight in heels, abs tight, shins parallel with chest, knees in line with toes.
However, I didn't give myself a perfect score because 1) there is always room for improvement, and 2) my fitness trainer sister pointed out that my arm position is a little...well, lets just say undecided! My elbows aren't forward enough to be in "front position", nor are they far enough back for "back position." Now I had no idea there was even different strategic positions for arms during a squat until my sister told me. I used to only do body weight squats with my hands clasped together in front of my chest (apparently that's totally fine), but now that I use weight, it looks like I've got some new technique to work on for arm positioning.
Wish me luck!
