A training tip from ClinicalAthlete Provider : "Why does your coach tell you look up while squatting? The video of @ericdesmand_ barely able to squat 525 @ 197# tells you why. Notice that once Eric comes out of the hole, his head is flexed (Not Neutral) and his eyes are down(Not Up).

A movement & mobility tip from ClinicalAthlete: Goblet squats are a fantastic tool to teach the squatting pattern.
