How to do the perfect Hip Hinge Squat

Updated: Nov 11, 2019

EXERCISE OF THE MONTH: HOW TO DO THE PERFECT... HIP HINGE SQUAT

An essential movement from the Buff Bones Program to help those with Osteoporosis/Ostopenia protect the back. Also a great way to safely reach the floor for everyone! The top reasons for doing the Hip Hinge Squat: 1) To keep the back straight & protected 2)To increase your range of movement - in this case to help you get to the floor 3) To stretch the hamstrings 4) To strengthen gluts (remember to use the core and gluts on the way back up)

Top Tips for a correct movement

+ Bend those knees but keep them on top of the feet - in a perfect movement the knees are directly above the heels + Really practise pushing the bottom back first + Then 'fold' the body in half - try to get your tummy on your thighs + Keep the pelvis centred between the legs keeping even weight under each foot
