Deep Squats are a Must for All Athletes

Here is one of my elite ski racers tending to some deep squat exercises. 


NOTE:
- the fight to keep her spine vertical as she squats down.
-the fight to keep her spine vertical as she comes out of the squat
-the fight to stay stabilized as the swinging weights challenge her stability
-the fight to keep her heels down throughout the squat 



Here she is following a movement pattern where she runs three steps and squats alternating a forward arm position and an overhead arm position at each squat.
