Chelsy gets focused and braced before she squats.
Back squats are so fantastic for developing strength in the legs, core strength and stability. What most folks don't realize, is that breathing is super important for proper squatting. Your breath and how you breath creates pressure and support in your trunk and core while you descend. A braced and strong trunk and core is essential to squat safety and efficacy. It is as important to practice breathing and bracing with light warm-up weights as it is with heavier loads. In fact, practicing proper technique at lower weights and loads is the ONLY way you're going to be able to properly and effectively brace and breath when the world is on you back. You'll have plenty of opportunities to work on this today. Good luck!
