Aim Higher, Squat Lower.
Standards. We all have them; whether you’re determining clean clothes from dirty, a productive workday from a wasteful one, or scoping out a potential stud/studette. In most cases, they are a measurable, quantifiable way to observe an expectation being met or any deviation from that expectation. It seems that although our standards may all differ in the aforementioned instances, they are universally understood. When we take a look at our world of strength and conditioning, we find innumerable examples of how standards are being used properly, improperly, and not at all, when it comes to squatting.
Dr Matt Zanis joins John and Tex to debate when standards matter for squats and the pertinence of gear and anatomical alignment to lifting, training, testing, fitnessing, and sport. It’s good to have standards- but standards are useless if you don’t know what purpose they serve.
