The squat is arguably one of the best, most effective lifts out there. This compound move attacks your whole lower body and helps develop everything from balance and flexibility to overall strength. Unfortunately, it’s also a move that is often done incorrectly, which can make the move less effective or, even worse, dangerous. If you’re worried that your squat form isn’t perfect or you’re simply seeing your gains stall and plateau, here are some important ways to improve your squat. Make sure you get the most out of your lower body workouts and you’re performing this move right before you start to load the bar with more weight.
