By incorporating a deep squat section into your workout routine you will help to tone and develop overall muscle in the lower body. It will also help to improve your posture and structural balance. Most people have an idea as to how to perform a squat or a deep squat, but, it is key for the success of the exercise that you perform it correctly. Your deep squat can be performed either on the floor or on a vibration plate, as demonstrated in the video above.
Stand on the vibration plate with your feet shoulder width apart. Make sure that your weight is evenly distributed on both feet. Hold the bars of the vibration plate and with your back slightly leaned forward squat to the required depth.
As you perform the exercise make sure your knees do not extend over your toes. When performing a deep squat it can be easy to go over your toes, it happens when you lose control. Make sure you are constantly in control of your body by tensing your quads, glutes and abs. Keep a flat back throughout this exercise.
You can perform this exercise dynamically as shown in the video or statically. To do it statically get in the deep squat position and hold that position.
To begin with aim to do the exercise for 30 seconds. Increase this amount of time as your strength and stamina increase.
