I will be holding a Starting Strength Training Camp on the low bar back squat on Sunday December 23rd. The proceedings will begin at 1:00 PM and continue until around 5:00 PM, or until people get tired of asking questions. We will begin with a discussion of the mechanics and anatomy at work during the squat and then move on to warm ups and a full squat workout. The class is limited to eight participants and we go around the room one by one while I coach the work sets. Once the squatting is done, we cool down, stretch, and return to a discussion about strength programming and injury prevention. The afternoon ends with a question and answer session.
If you are struggling with squat technique and want to improve your strength, this is a good opportunity to spend some time on this exercise in an unhurried environment. The cost for the camp is $125. Sign ups and additional details can be found at the Aasgaard Company Store.
