Having a stable foot during a squat is crucial for performing the exercise safely and effectively. A stable foot ensures that the weight is distributed evenly, reducing the risk of injury and allowing for proper muscle engagement. Come see one of our Kamloops Personal Trainers to work on this important skill!
Here are some key reasons why having a stable foot during a squat is important:
Ensure you have a stable foot by creating a tripod foot. Have your weight going evenly through the heel and base behind your big toe and little toe. The arch of your foot should be contracted with the toes loosely on the floor. Proper footwear is also an important factor in helping you create your stable foot. The TCSC Kamloops Personal Training can assess your foot and create a plan for reducing your injury risk.
