    How to Squat Correctly and All the Different Variations (Functional Movement Mini-Series Part 2)

    Functional Movements are key when you want to workout in the most effective and efficient way possible.  Functional or primal movements are those that use more than one muscle group at a time.  Because of this, they will always activate your core when done correctly and really help you build true strength that will equate to a long life of being able to move well! There are 7 main movements that make up this mini series: squatting, lunging, pushing, pulling, pressing, twisting and finally hinging. This episode of the Lift Your Life Podcast is all about the movement that's probably the most widely talked about: squatting. Hopefully by listening to this episode you can be more sure of your form when squatting and you can maybe learn some new variations to keep increasing your strength! Remember, the podcast will now be airing new episodes bi-weekly, so stay tuned for part 3! If you like my exercise and fitness theories, check out health coaching where I can tailor these skills exactly to your life so you can keep progressing in your health journey! Apply for Health Coaching Thanks for listening and don't forget to follow me on Instagram.
