Mobility for the Squat – Episode 58

Why can’t I squat to depth?  Why do my hips feel so tight? What is a butt-wink and should I be worried?  If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, this episode is for you.  Kristin, our resident chiropractor and movement/mobility expert breaks down some general mobility and stability principles for us and then goes in depth on how to hit better positions in our squats.
