Drop a squat!

Welcome back to Making Movement Matter. I’m Kristin Marvin. As a performance recovery specialist I see so many athletes with back pain, back injury, aches, uncomfortableness, what have you. I am dropping a squat in Kalamunda National Park. You don’t have to do a full squat, you can do a modified squat. I will go to a tree. Hello tree. I’m holding a tree and just going down as much as my body will allow, vertical shins, untuck the tailbone, ribs down.

Now, a lot of you have heard dropping a squat so often that you don’t do it. Dropping a squat is the best way to decompress the spine after a loooooong day of compressing it in the first place, in your sport and at work. Take care, DROP A SQUAT.
