??SQUATS: WHERE TO PLACE THE WEIGHT ON YOUR FEET?? – Ever found yourself struggling with knee pain when squatting? Got flat feet? Knees bend inwards? – ???WORK ON YOUR ARCHES! – I struggled with this myself, back in the days, because I do have flat feet. – Strengthening/building an arch is crucial when it comes to having a great squat: developing an arch will allow your knees to bend outwards thanks to the external rotation cue implemented by the arch itself to the top, as opposed to having the weight placed on your inner part of the foot, which’ll cause everything else to rotate internally and cause pain as a result. – If you don't have flat feet it doesn't matter. When the weight gets heavy your arches will tend to fall internally, so if that's the case, make some extra effort to keep the arch strong through the entire repetition. – It’s not like flat feet is “BAD”, but the way the forces act on it (especially when overloded) can cause troubles. – Actively work on your arch and make sure that you’re giving your feet an external rotation cue which will eventually make your knees bend outwards. – It’ll take time and it’ll feel awkward, but it’ll improve your squats 100%! – ???TAG somebody who needs to see this!! #pheasyque
