Categories Personal Training Workouts Do Your Heels Raise in a Squat? Post author By Dale Wallace Personal Trainer Post date March 26, 2020 No Comments on Do Your Heels Raise in a Squat? View this post on Instagram Struggling with your squat? There could be a number of reasons why you struggle for full depth and/or find your heels lifting. One possible reason could be down to poor ankle mobility. Putting a small plate underneath your heel opens the ankle joint. This could improve your squat, if it doesn't then it's likely that there are mobility problems within your hips. Speak to a coach if this tip doesn't help you. Note that doing this creates a little more quad engagement and reduces the movement at the hip slightly. If your goal is to hit your glutes it might be worth starting off with some isolated glute exercises first instead #glutes #bum #squat #quads #technique #tip #friday #fridaytip #workout #legday #heels #gym #puregym #preston #hips #knees #ankle #mobility #personaltraining #gymmotivation #coach A post shared by DaleWallace.PT (@dalewallace.pt) on Feb 8, 2019 at 3:24am PST Tags fitness, how to squat, leg exercise, leg workout, legs, squat, training ← How to Plank Properly → How to Half Press Up Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
