Quick check-in for me today. Every month I’ll be sharing a fun little piece of information or a new exercise, designed to help you along in your fitness journey. I learned this a couple of months ago, from a barre instructor and thought it was a cool little tip.
You know how when someone is instructing you on proper form for squats, they say “feet underneath your hips,” or “feet hip distance apart”? Well, it’s hard to know what that is since you can’t really see yourself, right?
So, the tip of the month is this: if you hop up and down three times, wherever your feet land after that third jump will be the proper distance for squats. It will be your natural “hip distance apart” stance. You don’t need to jump very high at all for this to work.
I do it all the time now before squats.
All I can say is that it’s a good thing that I don’t care at all about looking cool anymore, because I’m pretty sure I do not.
But I do look like I’m having fun.
And I am.
