Online Squat Assessment | Sports Performance Physical Therapy


let’s test again and we are
going to analyze Charlie’s back squat alright and use yep alright perfect so
we’re gonna analyze a little bit of back squatting with a lighter load
five pounds by four all right so let’s pick this apart so on the decent you’d
imagine he’s got a higher grip I can’t tell on that by his elbow
position he might be a high bar maybe hybrid yeah maybe it makes up both
looks he hinging like it’s a low bar definitely yeah alright so now we’re
getting into full depth from just on the descent any feedback so I love that he’s
breaking at the hips if I’m probably given this maybe fit into the front part
of the squat a little more so load the claw so breaking both at the hip and
then you think he has a heavier tip yeah so it’s very excessive right at the top
you can kind of like shoot those hips back yeah I do the break to happen and
simultaneously yeah okay so he’s gonna come see starting at the hip right there
right so what you’re saying is you want to see simultaneous deep bending at this
guy coming straight down bar path will stay exactly where it’s at it’ll just
take off pressure off the lower back if he’s not just doing this excessive hip
hinge especially with four five on his back okay so now we’re descending what about rounding at the spine
anything solid there I mean he maintains that nice initial back a little movement
at the hip in the very bottom but not bad right I mean it’s yeah and we don’t
know what rep this is but alright so now on the a cent let’s see we have here
right off the bat what do you like coming off the ground
right up high he’s good pressure pushing through the foot not too far back on his
heels not too far forward on his toes a bar path looks pretty good he does I
kind of same thing as the the descent like I’d want to probably load the quads
a little more to take pressure off the back I could see the the back and the
hitch having a lot more force going through there I agree I think that you
know what you’re saying is like if you were to he’s getting a good rise on both
but you can see as he pushes up he gets that hip to go posterior so he he it
looks like he loves loading backside and I think we all do that like naturally
like we because you always hear like to just make sure you you sit back a little
bit more but I think that can also promote a little bit it almost becomes a
deadlift if you were exaggerated that right like you you hit your hips back
you’re almost going to be aren’t doing an RDL a little bit if it’s an excessive
so really on the rise it’s not bad otherwise yeah he’s moving and quick to
her step 4 so it seems pretty light for him you know I’d agree with that so
across the board let’s see here that’s pretty good with the descent and a stand
coming onto that awesome I love that so let’s go ahead and get out of this one
so I’m going to do is let’s move over to I think at a higher load he had a harder
time with maintaining that so let’s go let’s go I think 455 was his next move
up and you ever hit 455 Jason no no not on a kind of back to Kauai alright so
I’m gonna go ahead and move this one out of the way and then when I come over
this one and I’ll share this screen with you so that way you can see it on this
one so the next one let’s go on to 455 all right next one coming up 455 and it
is a different angle so we have to monitor that just remember shout out to
the gym do that right there branding right there can you see that all right
perfect so this is high profile so you
definitely have to keep in consideration interesting on what you said he’s got
that posterior shift right there right if anybody were to get feedback you must
wanna hit the hip back but that knee bend has to happen simultaneously
because now if you hit that hip back that bar path is gonna stay forward
because it’s gonna give you equal opposite force right as you descend he
has a little bit more of that front torso right off the bat compared to his
last one yeah he’s kind of doing he kind of goes into a good morning positioning
away halfway down in the squat I think if you just sat a little more forward on
that and stopped straight down rather than shooting hips can be looking back
up a little higher and that bar wouldn’t pitch out in front of them so even
coming up he’s having to do kind of a good morning to straighten just about
the second rope this one’s a little better but he doesn’t but on this first
one this is where you start to see that right away like forward chunking right
right and that’s just that big shooting the hips back motion rather than having
it happen at the same time so hip and knees simultaneously versus one vs. it’s
easier to understand if you just understand like an accordion if you just
smash an accordion straight down it collapses so squatting is the same thing
so if you get those hips to go down and the knee to bend basically have them
accordion straight down that would help get him to a point where he has less
pressure on his back now this one’s heavier and he’s still expressing that
just a little bit the second rep what do you see here on the collapse on the
descent major on what about the spine around
anything at the base no I mean that’s nepa spine coming down I mean I like the
second rep much better than I like the first rep he came out of the whole lot
quicker too you know so far velocities a lot much higher right there right in
there right there perfect okay so the nickel what we’re gonna do is we’re
gonna go and you’re gonna see that this is what we I think this can be the
challenge right here right this right there is a game-changer because you can
see in slow-mo more than ever that’s hips back then that’s that’s tall
if you can keep this momentum but what you can see that hips kind of rock back
and you get kind of like grazes toes out back so just alright too much pressure
on the heels right this is like at the club type of stuff right here right but
what we want to do and this is all in theory right like you know we have 455
on your back we’re just trying to correct some small mechanics and I think
we can get don’t get lost in the semantics set this is truly as much as
possible trying to get as good mechanics you can underneath the highest loads so
you can minimize your your pain and I and I’ve worked with Charlie in the past
these are small things to clean up so if we go
hips back you see that problem right there what would you do to correct that
Jason what are you what’s your feedback again getting temple head stuff loads
open and shift the weight forward so he’s actually in those hips back
pause class what the paws claws would be good to just to be comfortable and then
shoot straight up rather than having the the chest pitch so far forward so he has
to do a good morning halfway up yeah because essentially everything looks
good like like him coming down right here this looks pretty good right if we
can have him accordion down he has accordion back up but he’s gonna
shoot those hips back and ultimately he just needs to practice getting out of
the hole and even temple like you said at lower
lowers needs there but ultimately you know he’s able to get that up finish
here feels good but this is where this is the problem right here he’s doing a a
good morning a slight good morning right like he’s he’s using fine work here so
knowing the history of back issues this is gonna be the kicker here so temple
anything coming out pin squats anything coming out of the hole as much as
possible and practicing that as you can see that right there that’s that’s the
main driver okay alright so four or five you look good
at 4:55 we start to see challenges with basically the decent wasn’t as bad on
that second rep but it really becomes a cent and getting out of that hole his
breathing pattern looks good he maintained that his grip you can kind of
see no more maybe ya know bars gonna help facilitate that so he’s in a good
position there it really comes out coming out of the hole and and this is
assuming like we don’t know work we don’t know like ankle mobility HIPPA but
like all these other things going into it but if it was just a patterning issue
we’re just working on straight mechanics from like a alignment and mechanics
coaching perspective these ideal scenarios and then we have to work with
the all the other things on the mechanical side joints and muscle tissue
and everything else but that’s it I mean that’s pretty straightforward so you
know if you want to clean up your squat these are some small things to consider
we’ll continue picking apart Charlie on a different episode with atlas and in
the club moves right here yeah overall man there’s nitpicky but it’s pretty
good yeah pretty good squat strong squat two very very impressed thanks Charlie
for letting us do that into education for your contribution where I continue
this excited some people’s feedback on what things that they would do but we’ll
wait here back from you guys so you guys till next time
