  • 0:45 I have been doing this for last 6 years and today I understood why I have lower back pain. Even medicine was not working because it was actually my fault.

    Thing is, she absolutely cannot do a squat without curving her back forward. Looks like the mistake #1, except she ain’t holding anything on the back of her shoulders, she was placing her hands as a front squat.

    How to fix it?

Also, for those people who’ve lost ankle ROM due to a prior fracture, should they always squat with their heels elevated? If so, both heels? (Including the non-fractured one?)

  • A major mistake I see is when people do squats on a barbell machine, they put their feet in front of them instead of straight under them. That is going to hurt the back, which is obviously not good.

  • Great video. I really needed these tips right now, thanks. Also, I really appreciated how you referred to actual scientific articles that back up what you are saying. Most fitness Youtubers don’t do that.
